Ethics and GCP

The activities of the TEDDY Network also address aspects related to ethics in clinical research.  Its activities are concerned with the granting of adherence to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) in paediatric trials, also implementing the European Ethical Recommendations.

Documents produced include recommendations for children and adolescents, parents and doctors and health professionals, all with the objective to raise awareness on clinical research, and empower and motivate children in participating in future clinical research.

Moreover, TEDDY produces specific case by case documents (informed consents, assent forms, booklets) tailored for different age groups for each trial.
