Should your child participate in a clinical trial?

    Clinical trials are an essential part of the development and creation of new drugs medicines and treatment processes.

    Typically patients are invited to participate in a clinical trial based on their diagnosis and other aspects of their medical condition. Participation in a clinical trial could last a few months or up to a few years. There are benefits and risks associated with participating in a clinical trial that should be explained to you and your child before you start your participation.

    If you are evaluating a clinical trial, make sure to ask your clinical team all of your questions. If you don’t get the answers that you need to make an informed decision to participate, then don’t.

    I hope that the following articles and videos help you to better understand why clinical trials happen and if they are something that you want to be involved with. 

    Warm regards,
