- at least 2 people have access to update the study record and that staff are providing regular updates through the notes function.
- the study details (e.g. planned recruitment end, site target, study contact) are kept up to date
- ALL activity is logged in EDGE. This includes patients that have been;
- pre-screened (e.g. this could be looking at a clinical list)
- approached (even if they declined, this is activity!)
- consented (even if they didn’t meet the eligibility criteria, this is work you have done!)
- Recruited – extremely important that we enter patients that have been recruited onto EDGE the same day or at the very least the same week.
