Watch our Data Access and Discovery Webinar on Data Use Registers

We held our first Data Access and Discover webinar last week.

@nada.karrar (HDR UK) spoke about our work so far on developing a set of standards for data use registers to help improve transparency in health data research. We also heard from two guest speakers Angela Coulter (Chair of HDR UK Public Advisory Board) and Victoria Yorke-Edwards (Research Fellow at MRC Clinical Trials Unit UCL) both of whom were part of the community that helped develop our recommended standards for data use registers.
