This course aims to provide an overview of the issues arising
surrounding ownership of data, confidentiality and secrecy in research
and the sources of support and guidance available.
Participants will have a better understanding of the issues arising
around ownership, confidentiality and secrecy and will be better
equipped to handle this within their work. They will also have the
opportunity to identify sources of support and guidance. The session
will be a mixture of interactive lecture and group work.
