The UIHI has created a Developing Data Use Agreements resource guide and a template Data Use Agreement (DUA) to help you develop your own agreements when engaging in research or other projects where patient or agency data is shared. These data use resources are meant to serve as guides; be sure to consult with your organizational leadership and legal counsel to develop DUAs that best fit your purposes.
This DUA template provides the key elements for entering into DUAs with partners. A DUA specifies the steps and constraints required to ensure privacy protections for study participants (or patients) and addresses data ownership rights. This template serves as starting tool for you to develop your own DUA; consult with legal counsel during the DUA process.Download»
