VISITDY deprecation question

requires re-org of structure; would go in general variables-like section, along with DY, etc.

When to populate VISITDY vs --NOMDY (3.1)? Where is VISITDY in 3.1? 3.0: Populate VISITDY per IG. 3.1: 3.1 marks the beginning of the deprecation of the VISITDY variable; SENDIG 3.2 is expected to completely deprecate VISITDY. --NOMDY is the go-forward representation of the reported day in the datasets.

  • Dataset populators should only populate --NOMDY (and expect VISITDY to be phased out)
  • Recipients should ignore VISITDY in favor of --NOMDY.

Actual day is still represented in --DY, and planned/unplanned is represented in --USCHFL (which covers the meaningful part of the planned day concept).


Which TSPARMs should I include?
Which TXPARMs should I include?
There are two sources of recommended parameters to include - the SENDIG's "Should Include" and the FDA's TCG, which calls out certain parameters. You should at least include both of these sets, as well as any that make sense for your study.
*Note: the long name mentioned in the TCG may not always match the version of CT you are using; use the long name from the CT list)

Which CT should I use for TSPARMs?
Which CT should I use for TXPARMs?
The SENDIG calls out some CT for the TS and TX parameter lists. As of 3.1, this is being worked on. If/when you see CT called out in the SENDIG, use it. Otherwise, use your best judgment.
