Conducting Research

Conducting Research in NEDA

NEDA encourages research and is designed to enable researchers to build the most accurate possible understanding of cardiovascular diseases that can be assessed by echo, and the impact of abnormalities on mortality.

NEDA data includes linkage with the National Death Index. Identified data is protected under conditions imposed Human Research Ethics Committees that have approved the study throughout Australia.

 

Access to identified data is restricted only to those requiring the data for purposes of data linkage. All analysis of data will be performed on de-identified data and there will be no access to identified data for any other purpose, including government departments and regulatory authorities.
