Question: 1 / 50

What is the initial documentation of data in a clinical study called?

Primary Data Record

Clinical Journal

Source Document

The initial documentation of data in a clinical study is called a source document. This is because it is the original record of the data collected during the study, and is considered the most reliable form of data as it has not been altered or manipulated. Option A, Primary Data Record, is not the correct answer as this refers to the processed and formatted version of the original data. Option B, Clinical Journal, is incorrect as this is not a formal record or document used in a clinical study. Option D, Study Log, may also seem like a plausible answer as it refers to a record of activities and events related to the study, but it does not specifically refer to the initial documentation of data. Therefore, option C, Source Document, is the most accurate and appropriate answer.
