If you don’t know where your personalised data has gone, there’s no way to know whether your wishes are being respected. Mistakes that arise due to secrecy can be catastrophic to public trust in the handling of NHS patients’ data, and in other fields.
How do we begin to understand and resolve these issues? What are the benefits of medical data in research studies and the development of new treatments? How do we open a window onto how our medical data is being used to benefit everyone?
For this lunchtime lecture Sam Smith of medConfidential will walk us through the issues, solutions and benefits surrounding personal medical data.
