Call for Members of the Public to Apply for Citizens’ Jury on Access to Health Records

Jury Duty with a Difference!

Call for Members of the Public to Apply for
Citizens’ Jury on Access to Health Records

IPPOSI, the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry, is currently seeking to recruit 25 members of the public to act as a citizens’ jury to deliberate on the matter of access to health information. Health information can be valuable for making decisions about individual care, but also for managing the future of health services more broadly. Health leaders, researchers and companies are all keen to have access to this information. But this is information about people, and those people should have a say in how it is viewed, shared and used. This jury aims to let you have your say!

IPPOSI will recruit a cross-section of 25 adults from different communities to meet online in April 2021 to hear from and ask questions of experts, and to deliberate. The jury findings and recommendations will be presented to Irish policy makers as they work to advance Irish health information legislation as well as the development of a national Electronic Health Record.

Jury Details:

  • Applications open 7th January, 2021
  • Closing date for all applications, Sunday 31st January, 2021
  • Applicants must be 18 years of age and living in Ireland
  • Jury will take place online, April 2021
