Event description

Description

Theme: Data Protection and the Health Research Regulations -
Finding a Way Forward


In November 2018, the Irish Health Research Forum held an event on the theme of ‘GDPR and Health Research: Stakeholder Voices’. This over-subscribed meeting facilitated vigorous and useful discussion on a challenging topic. The outcomes were captured in this widely used meeting report which includes ten recommendations relating to data protection and health research in Ireland.


On May 16th we will once again address this pressing topic. The event will aim to capture the perspectives of those most affected by the recent changes to legislation and to assess progress since the last event. Join us to contribute to discussions and to ensure your voice is heard by decision-makers.

On the day, attendees will hear from:

  • Dr Teresa Maguire- Head of Research Services Unit, Department of Health

  • Dr. Emily Vereker - Programme Manager, Health Research Consent Declaration Committee (HRCDC)

  • Caitriona Dunne - Patient Advocate and Head of Advocacy, Fighting Blindness

  • David Murphy - Assistant Commissioner, Consultation Section, Health and Voluntary Sectors, Data Protection Commission

  • Dr Suzanne Bracken - Translational Research Manager, Clinical Research Development Ireland (CRDI)

  • Prof Gerry McElvaney- RCSI/ Beaumont Hospital & President Irish Academy of Medical Sciences

The IHRF is managed and funded by the Medical Research Charity Group (MRCG), a not for profit umbrella organisation of health research charities and patient organisations. A small fee is being charged to assist the MRCG in covering the costs of the Forum.
