REDCap Hands on Training - February 2018

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN) is pleased to continue to offer Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) training to the Children's National and GW research communities. Would your study or research benefit from web-based data entry? REDCap might be for you!

What is REDCap?

• Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a web-based system for data collection that allows users to build and manage online surveys and databases quickly and securely.

• Data entry operators or people taking online surveys enter data in any web browser, either locally or from remote locations.

Why REDCap?

• Easy and intuitive to design, develop, and use data collection forms/screens

• Screen layouts are clear and simply to navigate

• REDCap provides audit trails for tracking the history of data entry and revision

• REDCap permits downloads of data to Excel, PDF, SAS, Stata, R, and SPSS

• Free use for members of the CTSI-CN or member institutions

Due to its popularity at Children's National and GW, and the ever-increasing need for REDCap support, we have assembled a small REDCap Support Team to assist new researchers in the start-up process of using REDCap. They may be reached at
