Governance and data access an interactive approach

Event details:

The reuse of data from existing health records is increasingly important in social health research. As potential subjects of health data audience members have a stake in understanding the mechanisms and motivations for accessing and using administrative records on the population for research.

This event explores ethics and governance of social health research interactively. Audience members will participate in decisions on accessing data from various sources to answer a specific population health question. We will use the real example of the relationship between low birth weight and pollution and access to data from the Scottish Morbidity Databases and hospital records and linkage with the Scottish Longitudinal Survey (SLS). At each stage the audience will be asked which type of data would be required and which governance structure would fit best. We will use the comparison between audience expectations and current ethics and governance frameworks as a spring board for discussion.

Extract:

In the past 30 years there have been major shifts in housing tenure in Scotland, resulting initially from housing regeneration as well as 1980 legislation enabling council tenants to buy their homes, and more recently a doubling of the proportion of households living in private rented housing.

Jan Freeke, a senior planning analyst working for Glasgow City Council, researched recent tenure change using data from the Census of population, the Scottish Household Survey and the Scottish Longitudinal Study to better understand the demographic factors underlying changes in demand.
