The course of research

Any research performed using individual-level health and welfare data must be guided by the general principles of research. There are special considerations regarding the use of health and welfare data due to its sensitivity; these must be taken into account at all stages of research.

The figure below presents the course of the research as five stages, each with their own sub-stages. By using the stages, you can find links to other areas of the portal where these themes related to the use of health and welfare data are described in more detail.
