Every Case Report Form (CRF) has a Comments field. This field can be used to provide more detail/context about the case.
What you should know about the comments field:
- Maximum input 4000 characters.
- This field is not confidential. This means anyone with masked access to the CRF in EpiSurv can see the whole field.
- Information recorded is not usually used for reporting as there is no quality assurance in the field and is a free text field (no efficient way of extracting the data systematically).
