A13 – Running Paediatrics Trials

Australia has seen an increase in the number of sponsor and investigator initiated paediatric clinical trials. Paediatric clinical trials have their own unique challenges such as informed consent for the parent/guardian and child, protocol design and cost. This session will look at some of the emotive, logistical and ethical challenges associated with research involving paediatrics from a sponsor, site and Ethics Committee perspective.
