How to use these resources
When it comes to research, evaluation, data analytics or data linkage, you can’t apply privacy or data protection law, or assess project risk, until you first understand the jargon, and the legal and ethical challenges created by research-based data uses.
Start with the ‘Privacy Essentials’ eLearning module to gain an overview of the foundational concepts and definitions, understand research participant and community expectations about data use, appreciate the role of consent (including how to get it, and when it is not needed in privacy law), the role of the 5 Safes, and managing risks when sharing or hosting data overseas.
Then use the two ‘Untangling’ eBooks for a clear path to understanding the law: decision trees help you quickly identify the relevant rules and exemptions in relation to the use and disclose of personal information, including through the various research exemptions.
Finally use the Demystifying De-identification eBook and related eLearning module to understand what de-identification means in privacy law, and for illustrations of how each different technique works and their relative strengths and weaknesses, as well as a checklist of risk assessment factors to consider for any given de-identification proposal.
