Requests for data from the Nova Scotia Atlee Perinatal Database are made through the Reproductive Care Program of Nova Scotia. The Combined JDAC/HDNS/DHW Data Access Request Form is used to apply for record-level data for any purpose, including research or health system planning. One of two committees will review your application, either the RCP Data Access Committee (RCPDAC) or the Joint Data Access Committee (JDAC). Research requests must be approved through the IWK Research Ethics Board as well as one of the data access committees. Requests for other purposes, e.g. health system planning may require additional approval from the IWK Health Centre.
If your request is for aggregate data, please complete instead the Aggregate Data Request Form.
For additional help with the data request process, please contact the RCP office.
