Attention: Does your organization use multiple modules within ResearchManager? In that case it could be that you first enter the module portal. Click on “ EDC (Data management)”. Dependent on your settings it could be that you enter one of our other modules first. If you do not see “EDC (Data management)” in the top left corner of your screen, click on the logo you do see to get to the module portal. Then, click on “EDC (Data management)” as well.
Step 1: Navigate towards ‘General study information’ to activate randomization and stratification
Now you see the starting page. Click at the top, in the menu bar, on ‘Management’. Then, click on ‘General study information’ under the heading ’Study settings’.
Step 2: Randomization and stratification options
Make sure that on the page you are on now, ‘’This study uses randomization and stratification’’ is checked on. If appropriate check the three options below it:
- This study uses randomization per site: If you select this option, then every site gets their own randomization table. Consequently, you are no longer dependent on other participating sites.
- This study uses random permuted blocks: When you select this option, the blocks with in them the possible randomization options will be placed in in the randomization table in random order. The usage of this option decreases the already small chance that users are able to predict the next treatment method.
- Date of birth is mandatory before a patient can be randomized: If you select this option, the extra field ‘date of birth’ will be added on the screen patient details. Before you can randomize the patient, the date of birth needs to be filled in.
Then, click on “Save” at the bottom of the page. On the page “Management” you now see, under the heading “Study settings”, the headings “Stratification” and “Randomization”.
