Entry Instructions
Responsible for Entry QA
Arm Description Enter a description of the arm. Both the Arm Code and Arm Description will display in the Subject Console > Treatment tab when assigning a subject to a treatment arm.
Once a protocol is OPEN TO ACCRUAL - DO NOT change the description. This will require re-interfacing if subjects are assigned. Contact OnCore Support before making these changes.
Required in the situations described
Arm Descriptions must be unique across ALL Arms and Steps. If more than one arm will have the same drug, then provide a unique description for each Arm.

Do not include stigmatizing information in Arm Description as this is viewable in research record in Health Link.
