Using our voice - how our Members are encouraging the use of health data to benefit others
Wednesday, 30 March 2022, 10.00 - 11.30
Our webinar showcased the work of our Members and our Associate Members, to promote the use of patient data to save lives and improve outcomes. We heard direct about their work and about how they incorporate within it, use MY data’s guiding principles on transparency and position statements. We hoped that this showcase would also inspire others to become more actively involved in our work – there is strength in numbers!

It was great to hear from our Members and Associate Members on their work and how they have embedded use MY data’s principles within it. Some of the key points which were made are:
The need for patient involvement to bring influence and not be tokenistic
The essential need for transparency about how patient data is used, including highlighting both the benefits and risks of its use
Ensuring that the wealth of existing patient data is actually used and the importance of embedding patients within decisions about this use
Patient voices can be used effectively to drive practical improvements and change, and break down traditional barriers to publication
The benefits and risks of a centralised health and social care data repository to support research.
Role of data as evidence in clinical trials and regulatory decision-making. How patients can be part of this, other than just being 'data subjects' (eeugh). Tranbslating that evidence into wider clinical benefit.
The devolved administrations (Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales)
The visibility of PPI contributors.
Would be good to return to much more in-depth on some topics e.g. Helen Bulbeck.
