edc-visit-schedule

Add data collection schedules to your app.

Installation

Add to settings:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'edc_visit_schedule.apps.AppConfig',
    ...
]

Overview

  • A Visit Schedule lives in your app in visit_schedules.py. Each app can declare and register one or more visit schedules in its visit_schedules module. Visit schedules are loaded when autodiscover is called from AppConfig.
  • A VisitSchedule contains Schedules which contain Visits which contain Crfs and Requisitions.
  • A schedule is effectively a “data collection schedule” where each contained visit represents a data collection timepoint.
  • A subject is put on a schedule by the schedule’s onschedule model and taken off by the schedule’s offschedule model. In the example below we use models OnSchedule and OffSchedule to do this for schedule schedule1.

Usage

First, create a file visit_schedules.py in the root of your app where the visit schedule code below will live.

Next, declare lists of data Crfs and laboratory Requisitions to be completed during each visit. For simplicity, we assume that every visit has the same data collection requirement (not usually the case).

from myapp.models import SubjectVisit, OnSchedule, OffSchedule, SubjectDeathReport, SubjectOffstudy

from edc_visit_schedule.site_visit_schedules import site_visit_schedules
from edc_visit_schedule.schedule import Schedule
from edc_visit_schedule.visit import Crf, Requisition, FormsCollection
from edc_visit_schedule.visit_schedule import VisitSchedule


crfs = FormsCollection(
    Crf(show_order=10, model='myapp.crfone'),
    Crf(show_order=20, model='myapp.crftwo'),
    Crf(show_order=30, model='myapp.crfthree'),
    Crf(show_order=40, model='myapp.crffour'),
    Crf(show_order=50, model='myapp.crffive'),
)

requisitions = FormsCollection(
    Requisition(
        show_order=10, model='myapp.subjectrequisition', panel_name='Research Blood Draw'),
    Requisition(
        show_order=20, model='myapp.subjectrequisition', panel_name='Viral Load'),
)

Create a new visit schedule:

subject_visit_schedule = VisitSchedule(
    name='subject_visit_schedule',
    verbose_name='My Visit Schedule',
    death_report_model=SubjectDeathReport,
    offstudy_model=SubjectOffstudy,
    visit_model=SubjectVisit)

Visit schedules contain Schedules so create a schedule:

schedule = Schedule(
    name='schedule1',
    onschedule_model='myapp.onschedule',
    offschedule_model='myapp.offschedule')

Schedules contains visits, so decalre some visits and add to the schedule:

visit0 = Visit(
    code='1000',
    title='Visit 1000',
    timepoint=0,
    rbase=relativedelta(days=0),
    requisitions=requisitions,
    crfs=crfs)

visit1 = Visit(
    code='2000',
    title='Visit 2000',
    timepoint=1,
    rbase=relativedelta(days=28),
    requisitions=requisitions,
    crfs=crfs)

schedule.add_visit(visit=visit0)
schedule.add_visit(visit=visit1)

Add the schedule to your visit schedule:

schedule = subject_visit_schedule.add_schedule(schedule)

Register the visit schedule with the site registry:

site_visit_schedules.register(subject_visit_schedule)

When Django loads, the visit schedule class will be available in the global site_visit_schedules.

The site_visit_schedules has a number of methods to help query the visit schedule and some related data.

Note: The schedule above was declared with onschedule_model=OnSchedule. An on-schedule model uses the CreateAppointmentsMixin from edc_appointment. On onschedule.save() the method onschedule.create_appointments is called. This method uses the visit schedule information to create the appointments as per the visit data in the schedule. See also edc_appointment.

OnSchedule and OffSchedule models

Two models_mixins are available for the the on-schedule and off-schedule models, OnScheduleModelMixin and OffScheduleModelMixin. OnSchedule/OffSchedule models are specific to a schedule. The visit_schedule_name and schedule_name are declared on the model’s Meta class attribute visit_schedule_name.

For example:

class OnSchedule(OnScheduleModelMixin, CreateAppointmentsMixin, RequiresConsentModelMixin, BaseUuidModel):

    class Meta(EnrollmentModelMixin.Meta):
        visit_schedule_name = 'subject_visit_schedule.schedule1'
        consent_model = 'myapp.subjectconsent'


class OffSchedule(OffScheduleModelMixin, RequiresConsentModelMixin, BaseUuidModel):

    class Meta(OffScheduleModelMixin.Meta):
        visit_schedule_name = 'subject_visit_schedule.schedule1'
        consent_model = 'myapp.subjectconsent'
