Quality Collaboration Network and Research and Evaluation Network: Data privacy and capturing consent from vulnerable cohorts

 Registration is closed for this event
The QCOSS Quality Collaboration Network and Research and Evaluation Network warmly welcome you to our combined May meeting to discuss data privacy and capturing consent.   

The community services sector holds a huge amount of personal information about Queenslanders. Understanding data privacy obligations helps prevent potential harm, fosters trust and respects the dignity and rights of those who access services. Capturing consent is an important intersect with data privacy, particularly when individuals identify with varying vulnerabilities.  

In this meeting, we’ll be joined by Professor John Swinson (The University of Queensland) and Tonia De Bruin (Yourtown) to talk about privacy and consent. We’ll be unpacking relevant legislation and case studies that demonstrate practical approaches to gaining consent.  

The Quality Collaboration Network is a peer-led network for those involved in implementing the Human Services Quality Framework within their organisation. 

It provides an opportunity to share experiences, information and resources on audit and quality matters, as well as identifying common issues across the sector to inform system updates to government. Monthly meetings offer guest speakers and discussion on a range of topics, while access to peers and experts provides a community of knowledge and experience to draw on for everyday support. 

Involvement is open to quality, policy or compliance risk professionals working in community services non-government organisations in Queensland.
