Improve Data Collection with These Tips for Electronic Case Report Form (eCRF) Design

Creating case reports forms (CRFs) is an integral part of study development in the clinical research process. Without them, gathering all of the pertinent information necessary for conducting a clinical trial would not be possible. What exactly is a CRF, at its absolute simplest? The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) provides this definition for […]
