This webinar will provide practical examples on how to involve children in clinical trials.
A child-friendly approach is necessary not only in the daily clinical practice, but throughout the research and development process, from setting research priorities, involvement in research design and planning, research conduct through to dissemination and communicating research findings. In case of studies involving children, age-tailored information booklets, assent forms and summaries of the results should be written in age appropriate, simple and understandable language to ensure ease of reading for parents and children. Moreover, the investigators should obtain agreement from the child in addition to informed consent of the parents, even when this agreement is not mandatory by law.
