Contained in the following pages are the Institute for Community Health (ICH) Policies, as adapted from: The Detroit Community-Academic Prevention Research Center, the Michigan Center for the Environment and Children’s Health, the North Carolina Community-Based Public Health Initiative, and the Harvard Medical School Faculty Policies on Integrity in Science.
- Data Confidentiality / IRB Policy
- Data Ownership
- Dissemination of Findings
- Memorandums of Agreement
These pages are intended to outline ICH policies regarding data ownership, access to data, authorship, data confidentiality, and data dissemination. Given that in each project, ICH will have differing roles (i.e. project evaluation vs. serving as the lead on a federal grant) and will have different collaborators, these policies are meant to serve only as a guide. For each project, it will be necessary for ICH and community/university partners to draft a memorandum of understanding regarding each project area, when appropriate, early on in the process. A project-specific working group should then be assembled to facilitate ongoing discussion of issues as they arise.
