Clinical Research: KIDS Barcelona Project

KIDS Barcelona is a project spearheaded by the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital that turns children and young people into advisers in order to improve the medical innovation and methods related to them and to adapt the information received about procedures that affect them to their capacities and their level of understanding.

If you want to know more about this project, we invite you to visit the website of the project.

Kids Barcelona: young person’s advisory group

We explain what are the clinical trials to children and adolescents

Clinical trials for children are different from studies aimed at adults and have their own particularities. The education of young patients is essential, in order to anticipate and prepare their participation, but also to help them in their decision-making process. In Spain, children over the age of 12 should, along with their parents or guardians, record their compliance to participate in a study of a new therapeutic option. We explain it in this video, which has been developed with the collaboration of the Scientific Council of adolescents of the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona.
