Question: Abstraction for Clinical Trial (STK)

Patient assigned an ICD-9-CM Principal Diagnosis Code 433.10, and enrolled in a research study for "Gore Embolic Filter in Carotid Stenting". Can "Yes" be abstracted for Clinical Trial (STK), if the patient was admitted for this procedure?


To select 'Yes' for Clinical Trial (STK), two things are needed. There must be a signed consent form for the research study present in the medical record, AND documentation on the signed consent form that the patient was enrolled in a clinical trial in which patients with stroke are being studied. Patients may be either newly enrolled in a clinical trial during the hospital stay, or enrolled in a clinical trial prior to arrival and continued active participation in that clinical trial during the hospital stay.
