Consent for data sharing resources

Detailed guidance for researchers, with model consent form and example consent forms, on how to consider future reuse of research data as part of consent procedures with research participants. To make sure that research data, in particular qualitative data, can be made available for future reuse, it is important that consent for future reuse of the data by other researchers is sought from participants.
