What is this public consultation about?

In 2013 the Authority published the National Standard Demographic Dataset and Guidance for use in health and social care settings in Ireland. We are now undertaking a revision of that standard.

What is in the public consultation document?

A national demographic dataset is a standard set of data that uniquely and uniformly identifies each individual that avails of health and social care services. The guidance is important to provide an explanation to all health and social care providers on what each data item is and suggestions on how to collect the information.
