Share Access to Research involving Children an Intensive Workshop

Event Details

"Children and young people are being denied the right to benefit from (clinical) research.
There is a mistaken and outdated notion that they need to be protected from (clinical) research, but the reality is that children are being harmed by not being included.
The importance of children taking part in clinical research cannot be underestimated.
Children are not small adults; the medicines and treatments children receive need to be trialled and shown to be effective in them, and not simply assumed to be from the results of research in adults.
Some colleagues at UCL will have projects where children
could be involved but don’t have the expertise to engage these children. Indeed these projects may be outside of biomedicine. At this forum you will have chance to get free advice from an experienced researcher and his senior team members free to you as a UCL researcher.
