Privacy in Research: The Risks and Rewards

“It was an excellent session. Well run and engaging for an online session that ensured all participants were involved.” – Trials Coordinator, Genesis Care 

“Personally, I was amazed at the quantity and quality of instruction crammed into the 4 hours. Plus, the level of engagement with participants in the session.” – HREC Member 

Ethical research requires consideration of “privacy and confidentiality” in research design and conduct.

Federal, state and territory privacy law delegates some decision-making about when the use and disclosure of “personal information” is legally allowed.

  • When can privacy considerations be overridden? 
  • What is personal information, and when is it deemed sensitive 
  • Where does ‘consent’ fit in?  

You have a responsibility to protect the privacy of research participants. In just 4 hours, you will gain confidence to better navigate federal and jurisdictional privacy law and regulations to ensure you are compliant.

Through facilitator led, guided group discussion you will share the experiences of peers, and learn from each other about unique challenges and strategies for success.   

This is essential knowledge for Researchers, Research Managers and Coordinators, HRECs and Research Governance staff. If you are involved in research design, conduct, ethical review, and governance of all types of research, we highly recommend you enrol in this workshop.

You can claim 3 CPD points on completion of the workshop.
