The National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) have recently released the Principles for Accessing and Using Publicly Funded Data for Health Research.
- The Principles (PDF)
- Principles to a Page (PDF)
- A Consumer Guide to the Principles (PDF)
The Principles provide a framework for researchers and data custodians to consider when requests or applications are made to access existing health and health-related datasets for research purposes.
By improving how data can be accessed and used, the Principles also aim to improve the quality of public health and health services research in Australia.
