Governance and data access an interactive approach (SLS event)
As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, Longitudinal Studies Centre Scotland are holding an event “Governance and data access an interactive approach” at New Register House, Edinburgh.
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.
