DSD: Managing participants in REDCap
Course Description:

This session outlines features available in REDCap to manage participants who contribute data. This includes methods of invitation, setting reminders, options for collecting data, and dealing with consent.

This session outlines different ways of inviting participations or managing participant data, from adding records to setting reminders, and securing consent to participate. You will learn how to view data as subject to user rights which can be set by project owners.

If you want to follow the session hands-on, you need an account on a REDCap project. Having an account is not compulsory for this session. For those who are interested in REDCap in the Data Safe Haven, this session will explain that.

This is a one-hour workshop delivered remotely.


An understanding of what a survey tool is, and different question types (e.g. text, multiple choices) will be useful. "DSD: Software for success: Survey tools" is recommended.
