Scotland’s first data strategy for health and social care is welcomed by Research Data Scotland
NESTA’s Data Dialogues project and summary
In 2019, Nesta and the Scottish Government embarked on a dialogue with Scottish citizens to understand their opinions and ideas for the use and sharing of health and care data, now and in the future, and to explore possible future uses that improve outcomes for everyone. This builds on Nesta’s previous work on new methods of public engagement, which seeks to better engage citizens to collectively imagine and create more sustainable, inclusive futures. We are pleased to now share the recently published data dialogues project and summary reports: Data Dialogues | Nesta and Outcomes from Data Dialogues | Nesta.
Nesta have also developed an interactive website which explores 7 identified relationships that Scottish people have with their health and care data. They are arranged by people’s willingness to share and whether they are driven by personal or societal concerns. Data Dialogues (nesta.org.uk)
