Repetitive forms & visits


edc2go allows you to create forms and visits as fixed (they occur in a fixed place in the CRF structure), but also as repeating. 
This means that the end user can create as many repeating forms or visits as required for each study patient.
  • Typical examples for repeating forms are Adverse Events, Medications and Protocol deviations.
  • An example for a repeating visit is an unscheduled visit.
If you define a form or visit as repeating in your CRF, the end user creates an identical template of this form or visit each time it is required.

Create a repeating form – DESIGN Mode

  • Within your CRF design page, click the ‘New form’ button.
  • Select the visit(s) in which the repeating form should be present.
  • Check the ‘Repeating form’ check box.
  • create the form by adding questions and validation rules
  • save your changes.
  • The screenshot below illustrates an example of a Concomitant Medication page:

NOTE: In the same way as repeating forms, you can also create repeating visits.

Entering data into repeating forms - UAT or Published mode

Data entry is done by end users that have a profile with write access (investigator or study nurse).
  • A repeating form in your CRF is indicated by the '+' icon in front of the form name.
  • A window will be displayed to indicate that you are about to create a repeating form.
  • Form date is automatically completed with ‘Today’.
  • Description is automatically completed with the name of the repeating form.
  • Both form date and description can be modified by data entry (but cannot be changed after form creation!).
  • Click ‘Create form’ to create a new instance of the repeating form.
  • The newly created form is indicated with a grey icon (empty form – no data entry performed yet).
  • Click on the form name to open:
  • The CRF page will open, allowing for data entry.
  • Compete all questions and save your entries.
