What is the Guidance Function?

  • Are you about to commence a research project?
  • Do you need health data for your research project?
  • Are you in doubt of which applications and permissions you have to fulfill for your research project?

Maybe the Guidance Function can help you.

The Guidance Function is part of the public initiative The Research Health Data Gateway, with the aim to simplify and make the application process and access to health data more user friendly for clinicians, researchers and companies.
The Guidance Function offers first-level guidance on the requirements and permissions needed when applying for health data. We provide information on which authorities to contact and in which order in relation to your project, to create an overview of the application process of requiring health data.

The Guidance Function services are free for both public and private clinicians and researchers, Danish as well as foreign.

Remember the Guidance Functions webinars

The Guidance Function is once again hosting free online sessions during the spring of 2023.
The sessions will consist of a brief introduction to the Guidance Function, a presentation of the session topic and a Q&A session.

The topics of the sessions are as follows: register data, data from patient records, data from clinical quality databases, material from biobanks, and clinical trials.
