Learn to Use REDCap Training on April 23
March 26, 2019
Learn how to use REDCap, a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. The Mountain West Clinical and Translational Research Infrastructure Network (CTR-IN) and University of New Mexico's Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) are offering this free Zoom training that is available to faculty and staff 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, April 23.
While REDCap (which is short for Research Electronic Data Capture) can be used to collect virtually any type of data, it is specifically geared to support online or offline data capture for clinical and translational research studies and operations. The U of I's Northwest Knowledge Network (NKN) currently supports an instance of REDCap that is available for U of I research personnel to use. It can be accessed here:redcap.nkn.uidaho.edu.
The training is designed for beginners. It provides an introduction to REDCap and its features, and is a good place to start for new users. The class format will be a PowerPoint presentation and include a demonstration.
Topics to be covered in this introductory course include:
- Setting up a basic project
- Understanding field types and creating the instruments for data input
- Turning an instrument into a survey
- Testing and moving your project into production
Registration is required. Please use the video conference link to register. A confirmation email will be sent to registrants with instruction for joining the meeting.
Remote users will have limited interaction during the teleconference session, but follow-up online support will be offered to address questions from participants. Inquiry about this training should be sent to Yiliang Zhu, director of BERD core of CTR-IN at YiZhu@salud.unm.edu. A follow-up evaluation will be conducted by CTR-IN.
