We can't forget the children in this process. The trend of the regulators is that it will become mandatory to involve a Young Person’s Advisory Group (YPAG) in the process of approving the design of clinical studies and being integrated in all related developmental processes. Towards this spirit, this session will bring examples of how Young Person’s Advisory Groups can be incorporated into the clinical development process. One example is our panel will include a representative from AbbVie and he will provide a first-hand perspective on partnering with a youth group for external protocol review and the impact on clinical protocol development timelines. He will also present how they overcame legal and compliance barriers due to engaging a youth population and incorporating their feedback into their pediatric trial.

Learning Objectives

Demonstrate how to increase the input and influence of children and their families/caregivers into the development of clinical research.
