About the workshop

This session will help you meet the particular challenges of working with sensitive data: obtaining informed consent, keeping data confidential, meeting ethical and contractual requirements, and setting up restricted data sharing both during and after your project.

  • understand the legal and ethical frameworks for sensitive data
  • cover the relevant data issues when wording your consent forms
  • keep data secure from unauthorised access
  • share sensitive data securely with other researchers
