What does the new data privacy regulation mean for research?

After the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force July 20, 2018, there are some changes on how data on patients’ health have to be treated. It is not enough to just have ethical approval! It is of course still a prerequisite to get REK approal before you start your project. New is that REK approval does not include the permission to handle personal data. In addition, it is required that you are allowed to personal data according to article 6 and article 9 of the personal data protection law. So you still need to get ethical approval prior to starting your research project, but the institution has the additional responsibility that handling of personal data occurs in accordance to the new regulation.

That means that the foundation to get access to personal data has to be evaluated by the project leader, and has to be included in the ethical approval. This foundation is either consent or dispensation of this consent requirement according to the health research laws. The project leader has to show that the treatment of personal data follow the general principles of the personal data protection regulation, for example definition of aims, minimizing the amount of data, limitation of storage and responsibility.

More internal control responsibility is given. We have to assure that treatment of the personal data is according to the regulations, and perform Data Protection Impact Assessments – DPIA when required.

This means that the responsibilities have in collaboration projects have to be well defined and agreed upon, which is of importance when you want to share patient data with your collaborators, and make written agreements. This is not a new requirement, but of more importance now with the new GDPR.

Both the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital have a Personal Data and Privacy commissioner – Janecke Veim and Christer Kleppe. If you are in doubt if you need an agreement with the hospital, contact Janecke or/and Christer (janecke.veim@uib.no, personvernombudet@helse-bergen.no).

In regards to this it will be some changes in the economy section. We have some ongoing work of dividing the research groups between the economists. More information will follow.

(Norwegian) Tips til utfylling av reiseregningen eller utlegg

Når du fyller ut en reiseregning eller refusjon av utlegg er det noen enkle tips som gjør at reiseregningen eller utlegget kan bli raskere attestert og godkjent:

  1. Kun ett utlegg på én linje – og last opp kvitteringen for dette utlegget på samme linje. Hvilke utlegg som ikke krever kvittering ser du når du fyller ut i reiseregningen. Vi anbefaler at du ikke lenger “bunkescanner”, men legger kvitteringen for hvert utlegg på hver linje.
  2. Beløpet du angir må være identisk med beløpet på kvitteringen – inkludert ørebeløpet! Dette gjelder også utenlandsk valuta.
  3. Datoen på utleggslinjen må være innenfor reisens start og slutt. På billetter som er kjøpt på forhånd er det reisedato som skal oppgis, ikke kjøpsdato.
  4. Bruk gjerne mobiltelefonen til å ta bilde av kvitteringen! Aller best bildekvalitet oppnår du ved å legge kvitteringen på en hvit bakgrunn.
  5. Om du har tatt bilde av flere kvitteringer i ett og samme bilde, ikke summer beløpet på èn linje, men opprett like mange linjer som det finnes kvitteringer i bildet, og last opp det samme bildet på alle linjene.

«Bot-Anna» bruker merknadsfeltet til å skrive resultatet av kontrollene. Om du opplever at roboten har gjort feil, er det fint om du kommenterer det i merknadsfeltet og sender skjemaet videre i HR-portalen som vanlig. Kontakt Økonomiseksjonen hvis du har spørsmål. For reiseregninger må du passe på at datoen du oppgir på utleggslinjen er innenfor reisens start og slutt.

Invitation to a single cell seminar with Genomics

Department of Clinical Science at the University of Bergen and 10x Genomics welcomes researchers with an interest in single cell sequencing. Single cell sequencing has revolutionized life science research leading to a deeper understanding of biological processes in health and disease. Rapid technology advances are enabling large-scale projects for resolving single cell populations from 100s to millions of cells in a given study.

AGENDA

  • Welcome and introduction
  • Single Cell Applications: 3′ Digital Gene Expression and 5′ Digital Gene Expression with combined VDJ analysis and the newly launched CNV solution – 10x Genomics
  • New product launches: ATAC Seq, feature barcoding. – 10x Genomics
  • Summary and discussion – All

Date: October 16th
Time: 13 – 15
Place: Seminar room 5.1/5.2, Laboratory building 5th floor, Haukeland

Migration Conference: Health in All We Do

15-16 November 2018, Bergen University Aula

Welcome to the UiB conference on migration health! The conference is organized by the University of Bergen in collaboration with Norwegian Centre for Migration and Minority Health (NAKMI), the University of Oslo and the Norwegian Directorate of Health.

Registration deadline: 15 October, 2018

The conference will be a meeting place where researchers, representatives from health services, volunteer actors and users enter into dialogue and actively listen to each other’s messages and experiences. Large gaps between research results, practice and patient needs can lead to unequal health care and poor health outcomes for some immigrant groups.

Research on “migration and health” has increased in scope in recent years, but there is little collaboration between academic disciplines, but also between health institutions nationally. Our vision is to provide politicians and the society with relevant, useful and up-to-date information that can help improve health care for all, including immigrants.

Programme here.
