There is increasing endorsement from organisations of the value and benefits of Patient and Public Involvement in the design and review of research studies and this is becoming a funder requirement for large clinical research studies. The Nuffield Council for Bioethics report Children and clinical research: ethical issues looks at how children and young people can ethically be involved in research, and makes recommendations about the roles and responsibilities of children, their parents or guardians, researchers and others including Universities and Research Ethics Committees. The session will consider:
– How does the involvement of children and young people benefit research projects?
– How does your University support research involving children and young people?
– How do Research Ethics Committees at your University support research involving children and young people?
The session will include a broad discussion of the ethical issues of involving children and young people in research and Research Managers, Administrators and Research Governance, Ethics and Integrity professionals can learn from the Nuffield Council report.
