Children and health research

Ruby and nurseThis set of resources gives an introduction to ethical issues in clinical (health) research involving children and young people, and how research is reviewed or approved.

The resources are based on materials developed in collaboration with researchers to support evidence gathering for the Council’s project on children and clinical research. The set includes a flexible plan for a workshop or lesson with different activity options including films, a role play exercise and group discussion. We suggest the resources are suitable as training material for research ethics committees, and for students from Key Stage 3 through to undergraduate level or above.
