Version: Feb 1st, 2012Slide2

Infection Adjudication

Based on the microbiology and antibiotic data entered, REDCAP will automatically trigger suspicions of newly acquired infections

Suspicions MUST be adjudicated by Site Investigator or MD delegate REDCAP will generate a table that will guide and assist the Site Investigator/Research Coordinator through the various steps

CRS Manual p 22Slide4

Log in to REDCAP using assigned username and password

Click on the “My Database” tab, select TOP-UP. Click on the “Infection Adjudication” link

You will be directed to the following window showing the patients that require adjudication and how many suspicions of infection each have

Click on the patient ID

How to Start?

4Slide5

Adjudication Table: baseline, daily data

Infection adjudication table will show up listing:

baseline/outcome information at the top

daily data elements, micro and antibiotics

Suspicions of infection (Newly Acquired Infections)

Slide7

Microbiology and Antibiotic Forms

7

Click on the antibiotic or organism names to view the corresponding antibiotic/microbiology forms

Click to open a window with the Day 1 Antibiotic form for

Metronidazole

Click to open a window with the Day 3 Microbiology form for

Escherichia

s.p

. - coliSlide8

Adjudication Table: suspicions of infection

You will have 3 options to enter in the NEWLY ACQUIRED INFECTION column:

This is a newly acquired infectionThis is not a newly acquired infection

This is a previously adjudicated infection

8Slide9
Slide10

a) Newly acquired infection

10

Pick this option if the clinical suspicion of infection is considered to be a newly acquired infection.

Assign a Category of Infection, then the degree of certainty of the infection using the definition from

CRF Appendix 9

For example,

on study day 9 the patient is febrile, has an elevated WBC, CXR reveals a new infiltrate. An

endotracheal

aspirate specimen was sent for culture,

S.

aureus

is identified. The infection should be adjudicated as follows:

Click to open a window describing the categories and the degrees of certaintySlide11

b)

NOT a newly acquired infection

11

Pick this option if the clinical suspicion of infection is

no

t considered to be an infection.

Assign the degree of certainty of the infection using

CRF Appendix 10

For example, On study day 17 a blood culture indicates the presence of

Staph Epidermis

. There are no other clinical indicators of infection (i.e. SIRS). A repeat culture is negative. The initial positive culture is thought to be a contaminant. The infection should be adjudicated as follows:

Click to open a window describing the degrees of certaintySlide12

c)

Previously adjudicated infection

12

Pick this option if this clinical suspicion of infection is associated with an infection already adjudicated.

Indicate the day and the suspicion # of the associated previously adjudicated infection.

Infections that occur within the first 72 hrs of ICU admission are

not

to be considered newly acquired infections, however, these may be related to suspicions later.

If the suspicion of infection was due to an infection that occurred in the first 72 hours after ICU admission, select “Baseline Infection”. Slide13

c)

Previously adjudicated infection

13

For example, on study day 19 the patient is febrile, has an elevated WBC and CXR reveals a new infiltrate. An

endotracheal

aspirate specimen was sent for culture, S.

aureus

is identified.

On study day 20 an antibiotic was initiated to treat the S.

aureus

.

The clinical suspicion triggered on study day 20 with the initiation of an antibiotic is related to a previously adjudicated infection.Slide14

How to clear responses?

To change your response, click on the CLEAR RESPONSE

To change your response, click on the CLEAR RESPONSE

To change your response, click on the CLEAR RESPONSESlide15

Infection ID #’s

All suspicions of infection will be assigned unique infection identification number followed by the study day it was entered on

Infection ID #s will never be repeatedInfection identification numbers will be sequential unless a microbiology and/or antibiotic form was changed/added AFTER adjudications have been saved

15Slide16

Site: infection responses completed

When done click SAVE & COMPLETED at bottom of page if you have completed ALL the infection adjudication for this chartSAVE if wish to return

Both buttons will initiate data checksThere will be a confirmation for either a “save” or a “save and complete” at the top of the table

Stages of Data Entry:

After initial adjudication

After completion of the adjudication, the patient will be in stage 3.

Central disagrees with at least one adjudicationSlide22

Central Adjudicator

At stage 4a, the central adjudicator will review each suspicion of infection and determine if s/he agrees or disagrees with the site’s suspicion of infections

Central adjudicator is assigned by CERUSlide23

Site response to Central adjudication

Every

few weeks, an email on adjudications requiring your attention (including those that have been centrally adjudicated) will be sent to youLog in using your USERNAME and PASSWORDSlide24

Site response to Central adjudication

Centrally adjudicated patients will appear on the adjudication table as stage 4b

If the Central adjudicator agreed with all the adjudications, stage 4b will be skipped and the patient file closes (stage 5)

4b

= Initial central adjudication queries

Stage 4bSlide27

NOTE: Sites responses removed

All adjudications that the central adjudicator has disagreed to will automatically remove the sites response upon completion

All adjudications that the central adjudicator agreed to will not be changed

27

This

was

removed because the Central Adjudicator disagreed with Infection ID #1

The sites response

was not changedSlide28

Comments

28

Click

to

see your old response and an explanation why the central adjudicator

disagreed in a new window

The number in brackets indicates the number of comments that have been recorded

Use the comments window to track the discussion and the changes to suspicion of infection

Click to add additional commentsSlide29

Site Response to Central adjudication

The CENTRAL ADJUDICATOR RESPONSE column will show either as an agree or a disagree (with a new response and the reasoning why in the comments)You must re-adjudicate all adjudications that the central disagreed toYou will have 2 options to enter in the NEWLY ACQUIRED INFECTION column: Agree OR Disagree

29Slide30

OPTION 1:

Select this if you agree with the determination made by the Central. If so, the following options stay

disabled

This is a newly acquired infection

This is not a newly acquired infection

This is a previously adjudicated infection

30

OPTION 2:

Select this if you disagree with any aspect of the determination made by the central (such as the presence of infection, the category of infection and/or the degree of certainty). Re-adjudicate using the following options:

This is a newly acquired infection

This is not a newly acquired infection

This is a previously adjudicated infection

Site Response to Central adjudication

Slide31

31

If you

disagree

, you must

save a comment

explaining your reasoning.

All adjudications that you disagree to will automatically remove the centrals response upon completion

Site Response to Central adjudication

Slide32

Incorrect Response

32

This will be removed because the

you

disagreed with Infection ID #1

You can not agree to a response that will be removed

This will be

also be removed

because

it refers to

Infection ID #

1 which will be removed

Since the central

response is

automatically removed

when you disagree

(

eg

infection ID #1), any adjudication that refers to it (

eg

infection ID #2) will be removed as well

An error will trigger if you try to agree with a response that will be removedSlide33

Correct Response

33

You

must select disagree and select previous to your (site) response

If infection ID # 2 is a previous infection to ID #1, you must disagree and select that the suspicion is a previous adjudicated to your response Slide34

Site: to complete final adjudication

Once adjudication is done, press

The status will go back to Stage 4a for the central adjudicator to reviewThe central adjudicator will have the opportunity to agree/disagree to adjudications you disagreed with

This process will continue between site and central adjudicator until there is consensus for all the adjudications

Once both adjudicators agree on all the responses, adjudication will be complete and the patient will automatically be set to stage 5

If the site disagrees with any of the central changes or has made any changes

If the central adjudicator agrees with

all

of the site adjudicators

Central disagrees with at least one adjudicationSlide36

Site Investigator

Remember the Site Investigator/MD delegate must determine the presence or absence of infection, the categories of infection and the degree of certainty

Upon completion at stage 5, print the adjudication table (right click and print) and have the Site Investigator sign it for source verification purposes

36Slide37

Whenever the or the buttons are clicked, they will run data checks.

There are 4 types of checksPartial responses

Missing responsesMissing Explanation

37

Data ChecksSlide38

1) Partial responses Check

Partial responses can not be saved.

For example, the category of infection and the degree of certainty must be completed for newly acquired infections to be savedThis applies to both and

38Slide39

2) Missing responses check

Missing responses can be saved only with

For example, infection ID # 1-4 has been completed but # 5 has not. You can save infections 1-4 with the button but you will not be allowed to choose until infection #5 has been filled out

39Slide40

3) Missing Explanation Check

If you disagree with the central adjudicators response, you must write a reason in the comment box

This applies to both and
