Kids and clinical trials: why the system is failing children

Nature Outlook on Children's healthWatch the webinar on-demand as part of our Nature Outlook on Children’s Health, published with the support of a sponsor.

A parent’s natural instinct is to protect their children from the illnesses that can disrupt their lives. In a collection of editorial articles, this Nature Outlook explores some of the biggest issues in children’s health.

As part of the Outlook’s launch, researchers, physicians, and policymakers were invited to attend a webinar entitled “Kids and clinical trials: why the system is failing children”.

Available on-demand, the webinar highlights that owing to a lack of trials, children often wait years for new drugs to be approved. The webinar panel discuss the reasons for the paucity of trials, the effect it has on patients, and how the approval process for pediatric drugs might be streamlined.

To raise awareness of a health, research, or societal challenge by sponsoring a future Nature Outlook, talk to our team today.
