BRIAN Patient Information Sheets

What is the patient information sheet?

The patient information sheet supports the consent process for BRIAN, our database and web app. It has been created to help you understand what you are giving us permission to do, and to ensure that you have been adequately informed about what BRIAN is and what it does.

Specifically, the leaflet explains what information is being collected, how it is being stored and used, and the benefits of collecting, storing and sharing this information ethically and responsibly.

Why do I need to read it?

Before signing the consent form, you need to be fully aware of everything that could happen to your information so that you can make an appropriate decision that is right for you.
