Just a quick note to introduce the Reusing Medical Recordings Project, which is a JISC-funded project “to encourage shared understanding between managers and practitioners across clinical and educational settings on the rationale and good practice for the creation and use of medical recordings for educational purposes”. This consultation aims to produce a set of guidance materials around ‘making and using clinical and healthcare recordings for learning and teaching’, aimed “primarily at students, teachers or doctors who wish to use a patient recording or patient data for learning and teaching. It will also be of interest and use to other clinical and healthcare workers as well as to university staff where patient recordings are being made available for learning and teaching.
The project should standardise guidance around issues of ethics, copyright, patient permission, storage and re-use in order to demonstrate good and responsible practice, and to generate trust and reassurance for the patient.
This may well have an effect on the work which we do in Media & Learning Technologies, but also across the campus. Findings and recommendations are expected in Autumn 2011.
