Presented on: October 6 & 7, 2021
Presented at: Advancing International Pediatric Clinical Research webinar series: Assent and Consent in the Field: Culture, Context, and Respect
The first conference in the series was a three-hour webinar that focused on applying lessons learned—those sustained and those abandoned– during the COVID-19 pandemic to future work with children in clinical trials.
We invite you to browse the Day 1 & Day 2 speakers’ brief biographical details.
Each keynote speaker was followed by two moderated panel discussions to:
- Deliberate the appropriateness and timing of initiating trials in children, and the different age groups within the broad scope of “children,” using lessons learned from COVID-19 and applying that learning to future pediatric trials.
- Address infrastructure, both new and adaptations to existing structures, needed to conduct efficient and ethical pediatric clinical trials on a global scale.
