Key Concepts addressed
In September 2013, the NIHR Medicines for Children Research Network’s ran a groundbreaking event: Generation R. Generation R was conceived, written and run by their Young Person’s Advisory Group. The event sought to engage the life-sciences industry in the importance of children’s research and the invaluable role young people have to play in its development.
A website developed by and for children and young people
This event led to the establishment of a website designed by and for the Generation R YPAGs, launched in May 2015. The site contains information about the groups, as well as videos, games and other teaching resources about getting involved in clinical research.
These five videos set the scene for involving children in health research.
