In our database, we store an AIDS defining illness under Events called 'Mycobacterium tuberculosis, any site (pulmonary or extrapulmonary)' and in HICDEP they have 'Mycobact. tuberculosis pulm.' and 'Mycobact. tuberculosis ...

In order to combat this abuse, only users logged in can post messages to the forum for the time being. I will investigate whether we can use a captcha or another suitable mechanism in the future. I apologise for the troubles caused. Kind regards, Simon

0 Replies and 3754 Views tblSAMPLES - sample types  3754  0 Started by  SuperUser Account Hi everyone, At the last TC, Yacine raised the issue that the sample types currently provided in tblSAMPLES is rather marginal. I agree with this, but it's hard to come up with a sensible list by myself, without knowing what other cohorts collect, so here is my question: Do you know any types of samples (be it blood or other materials) that the cohorts collect but are not listed in tblSAMPLES If yes, please let us know :) Kind regards, Simon

1 Replies and 3004 Views Website moved to new infrastructure  3004  1 Started by  SuperUser Account The Quality Assurance check named ATC006 (AllTables/CrossTable/'Any fields not coded as coding lists on the table definition') I think needs to be more specific for the field being tested. I was sitting with the DAD checks for the ART table– and we test both ART_RS and ART_ID for valid codes according to the table definitions. If a given record fails at least one of these checks then the error code ‘ATC006’ would not indicate which field failed. Perhaps it could b...

2 Replies and 3092 Views Task 4.4: Data Inventory Survey  3092  2 Started by  SuperUser Account Here is a temporary link ( http://195.134.113.76:8000/test3/survey.php ) for the Data Inventory Survey system I and Sara were working on. The survey system is not complete; you will see there is a Tab labeled 'Data Collection (Non-HICDEP) which, at the moment, is empty but I'm about to start filling it with actual questions regarding items that are not yet included in the HICDEP tables. The page is hosted at my personal computer so forgive the strange looking link. Things will be prettier at...

13 Replies and 3252 Views Paediatric tables / design issues  3252  13 Started by  SuperUser Account Hi everybody, I am currently including the paediatric tables (tblDELIVERY, tblNEWBORN, tblPREG, tblPREG_OBS and tblPregOut) into the HICDEP 1.50 draft. You can see the status quo in the above wiki articles. One thing standing out to me is that they are not designed in a relational way. E.g. tblNEWBORN basically consists of 28 fields, a boolean and a free-text character field for every problem that can occur. This is ok if the data is recorded and fed into the database only once al...
