at Online via Zoom
Online via Zoom
During this 60-minute session, we reevaluate the concepts of vulnerability and autonomy in research. Examples of pediatric research will be used to introduce ongoing ethical debates about equity and access, consent and assent, acceptable risk exposure, and biobanking and genomic research. Attendees will be encouraged to explore the relevance of these issues in their own studies.
By the end of this forum, participants will be able to:
Explain the vulnerability-autonomy continuum in research participantsDescribe the importance of risk and benefit assessments to involving children and adolescents in researchList one or more strategies to increase equity in research with "vulnerable" populationsSpeaker<a href="https://www.chla.org/profile/sabrina-derrington-md-ma-hec-c">Sabrina Derrington, MD, MA, HEC-C</a>Director of the Center for Pediatric Bioethics at CHLA, Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at KSOM
