Researcher Roundtable - privacy and responsible information sharing

Date: 20 AUG 2019 Time: 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM Location: Telethon Kids Institute Seminar Room, Level 5, Perth Children's Hospital Add to Calendar:

A Researcher Roundtable to discuss the best privacy and responsible information sharing arrangements for the WA public sector

Join Telethon Kids Institute, WA Health Translation Network and the WA Government’s privacy project team at a roundtable for health and social researchers to discuss:

  • a proposed legislative model for privacy and responsible information sharing in the public sector and with authorised third parties
  • what this means for your important work.

The WA health sector has a longstanding record of safely linking WA Government data sets to enable researchers and policy makers to gain new insights and develop solutions that are tailored and forward-looking. However, the WA public sector is one of only two jurisdictions in Australia without overarching legislation that either protects people’s personal information, or provides a framework for safely sharing information.

The WA Government has announced its commitment to introducing new whole-of-government privacy and responsible information sharing legislation for the WA public sector.

Let’s start the conversation…

Date: Tuesday 20 August 2019

Time: 9:30am-12:30pm

Location: Telethon Kids Institute Seminar Room, Level 5, Perth Children's Hospital

RSVP: Samantha.Burrow@telethonkids.org.au

Places are limited. An email with additional information will be sent to attendees prior to the roundtable.
