‘The Legal, Ethical and Professional Considerations in Healthcare Data Research’ @YCHI_Leeds

Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics are launching a new module ‘The Legal, Ethical and Professional Considerations in Healthcare Data Research’ – 9th – 13th May 2016, Charles Thackrah Building.

‘This module will enable you to understand the legal, ethical and professional frameworks that are relevant to research data use. The frameworks will be described and analysed in order to highlight their consistent themes and potential differences. This will be set in the context of the practical steps that researchers need to follow in order to ensure their research project is legally and ethically justifiable. As well as focusing on the particular issues relating to research data use, the module will give you generic tools in legal and ethical analysis that can be applied in other complex settings’.

Course Aims
On completion of this module, participants should be able to:
•Analyse the similarities and differences between and within the laws, ethical principles and professional guidelines that are relevant to research data use.
•Synthesise these into defensible, practical frameworks that can be applied to real-world research settings.
•Evaluate whether research data uses are lawful and ethical.
•Critically assess the appropriateness of different technical measures (‘privacy enhancing techniques’) in overcoming legal and ethical barriers to data access and use.
