CSFs for patients who are found ELIGIBLE for the trial should be completed and returned to the RA  immediately so that the patient can be approached for study enrollment in clinic. However,
for patients who are not eligible for the study, completed CSFs do not necessarily need to be returned to you on the same day that the physician saw the patients. Some physicians may not have time to complete all the forms in clinic as they go. Instead, they may prefer to complete all the forms at once after clinic when writing their clinic notes. There is no hard deadline for returning the CSFs, but within a few days is a good rule of thumb to go by so that forms don’t get lost in the shuffle.
