CiviCRM for Study Management and Monitoring

At the BRISSKit Hack Day, 24 February 2015, we explored using CiviCRM for Study Management.

Project Team:

Nick Holden, nrh11@… Norman Williams, norman.williams@… Tito Castillo, tito@… Sarah Lim Choi Keung, s.n.lim-choi-keung@… M Kahn, m.o.khan@… Lei Zhao, lei.zhao@…

Demo Site

For the time being, the demo site (a BRISSkit VM) is available at http://briss-civi.cloudapp.net/

Assumptions

For today's proof of concept hack, we are limiting ourselves to the concept of studies conducted within a single hospital research site. Future development of the model should allow for modelling multi-site and even international studies.

Objectives

To allow the monitoring of studies through the approval stage and eventual live status to completion and archiving.

A basic level of anonymous access to allow site of which studies are being run, and their state.

Object Model

Starting from a vanilla Drupal 7, CiviCRM 4.5.6 site, we made the following changes...

  • Contact Types
    • Individuals
      • Researchers
      • R and D staff
      • Administrative staff
    • Households - PROBABLY NOT USED
    • Organisations
      • Department
      • Ethics committee
      • Funding body
  • Relationships
    • "works in" (researcher - department)
  • Cases
    • Case Types
    • Case roles
      • PI
      • Research Nurse
      • R & D officer
      • Ethics committee
  • Activities
    • Apply for funding
    • Funding approval
    • Ethics approval - assign to the ethics committee
  • Custom data
    • ?

Trial Monitoring Option Checklist:

Risk-adapted approaches to monitoring are required. Type A (low risk) e.g. questionnaire study, Type B (intermediate risk) e.g. study using a CE marked device, Type C (high risk) e.g. CTIMP. Each study will need a bespoke monitoring plan according to risk and resources, but for this exercise shall we restrict ourselves to these three examples?
