What Happens to My Patient Data?
From Andy Tattersall
The Tools for Life: Data Sharing for Public Health project (2019-21) engaged the public in a conversation about the benefits and risks of patient data sharing for public health.
A key project in the Information Knowledge and Innovation Management research group.
The Tools for Life project is engaging patients and the public in a dialogue about the benefits and risks of sharing their personal data for purposes beyond their direct care.
By engaging in this dialogue our aim is to enable patients and the public to respond in a more informed way to the benefits and risks that the sharing and linking of personal data can bring to improving the public’s health.
