Data Sharing, Informed Consent and Confidentiality

What is this about?

Professor Stillwell is asked by another researcher to share his data from a project on family ties about the homeless. Stillwell is worried that this would violate consent of participants (as they were not informed that their data could be reused) and could lead to their identification. The case study asks about the appropriate safeguards regarding the participants' consent.

For whom is this important?
