GlobalSurg 3 Validation Update

Data Entry Deadline Extended

The data entry deadline for the GlobalSurg 3 validation exercise has been extended to
10pm (GMT) Tuesday 23rd April 2019

Validation Accounts Update 

We have now issued REDCap validators accounts for 244 validators – as soon as you receive notification that your account has been created you can begin the validation.

If you have registered as a validator but not yet received your account for data entry, this is because the primary data entered at your hospital is still undergoing the pre-validation checking and processing necessary.

Occasionally we have required clarification from the primary data collection teams and this is resulting in the processing of the data taking a little longer.

Please remember to check the spam/junk/clutter folders in your email accounts as we find the account creation emails frequently get filtered to spam. 

Completion of Validation Data Entry 

To complete your data entry for the validation study, you must complete both validation stage 1 and validation stage 2 which can be located in the ‘My Projects’ area on REDCap.


For full instructions please see the REDCap validators guide available by clicking here

Validation stage 1

In stage 1 you are checking the patient points entered by the primary data collection team match the hospital records.

From the My Projects area, navigate to validation stage 1 and the record status dashboard – the form for each patient will show as a ‘yellow dot’ on the records status dashboard.
Once you have entered the required data, set the form to ‘complete’ – the patient will then show as a ‘green dot’.

The ‘dots’ for all patients in your dataset must be green – no yellow, no red dots.
