The frequent reminder in pediatric research is that ‘children are not simply miniature adults’, and as such special considerations and methods are necessary in the implementation of clinical trials in youth.
This webinar will discuss factors critical to success in the design and execution of pediatric clinical trials. Presenters will review criteria for studies that are both scientifically rigorous while meeting the high ethical standards required of clinical trials in the vulnerable pediatric population.
Additionally, approaches to site selection, enrollment and retention will be discussed as consideration beyond the patient are necessary when the reality is that whole families may be impacted by clinical trials.
