We have a number of options for families birthing at Joondalup Health Campus to become involved with ORIGINS.
You can read about becoming a full participant of ORIGINS here, which involves attending appointments and completing questionnaires online. If you feel this level of involvement is not for you and your family, you may consider allowing the ORIGINS team access to your data routinely collected by the hospital.
If you would like to participate in ORIGINS by contributing information routinely collected, we invite you to allow us to collect data about you and your child from:
Your records held at the Joondalup Health Campus:
this includes your weight, height, blood pressure measurements, allergies, medications prescribed, glucose tolerance test result;
Routinely collected biological samples (such as blood, urine);
Your records held at other health and allied services e.g. immunisation records, GP records, hospital admissions in WA; and
Data linkage to collections held by the Australian Government, such as prescription medicines dispensed by pharmacies and childhood immunisation records.
