European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


The European General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on May 25th 2018 and has major implications worldwide. This is why you have been receiving emails from various companies asking you to agree to updated terms and conditions. European citizens now have multiple digital rights over their personal details, including the right to be asked to provide consent for the storage of personal details, the right to be asked to provide consent to be contacted, the right to see the personal information stored, the right to know who this information is shared with (consent is also required for sharing), the right to be contacted should a significant data breach occur and the right to be forgotten, including having all personal details permanently removed from a database. All of these changes must be prospectively acknowledged by the user and cannot be presumed to have occurred. The onus rests with the database holders (i.e. Critical Care Reviews) to be able to demonstrate consent has been obtained. Fines for non-compliance with this can reach €20 million. As a result, we have updated our privacy policy accordingly........

The current newsletter database will be deleted after next week's newsletter. If you wish to continue to receive the newsletter by email you will need to resubscribe after May 14th. You can resubscribe now, but need to use a different email address. If you wish to use the same email address, just resubscribe after May 14th. Anyone who has subscribed after May 2nd 2018 has already gone through this new process and does not need to resubscribe. The newsletter is freely available on the website at the same time as it is emailed to all subscribers every week, so there is no need to resubscribe if you do not wish to have your details on the CCR database. Please see our updated Privacy Policy if you wish to read more or email me if you need more information. 

Staying on this theme, this week's Topic of the Week is a broad look at data, starting with a paper on “Big Data” in the ICU in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

CCH Journal

Critical Care Horizons is a fresh new voice in the critical care literature, offering thought-provoking, cutting-edge commentary and opinion papers, plus state-of-the-art review articles. The journal is free to publish with and free to read, opening authorship opportunity to all. The energetic editorial board consists of a deliberate mix of clinicians active in social media and world renowned academics, all driven by a desire to improve the care we offer our patients, and operate without financial gain or incentive.  If you have an idea for a paper, and can say it in an engaging manner, please get in touch. We also need peer reviewers.

COI - I am the editor-in-chief of this new journal, but work in a voluntary capacity, as do all the editors.

I hope you find these links useful.

Until next week
