Pediatric clinical trials present unique challenges for monitors and coordinators alike. Minors, as a vulnerable population, require a variety of regulatory protections to be incorporated as part of the study’s design, recruitment strategies, and monitoring plan. In this session a variety of strategies to ensure success when enrolling pediatric populations will be discussed.
This session will use a 3-prong approach evaluating historical, scientific, and regulatory information to help better understand the special considerations encountered when enrolling minors in a study.
A true case study will be used to illustrate the difference between what actually happens and what should happen.
Take home benefits from this session will include:
● Understanding of the considerations in protocol design when developing a pediatric clinical trial.
● Understanding of the IRB review processes in relation to pediatric populations.
● Knowledge of different enrollment strategies to use when involving pediatric populations in a study.
