More about this trial

When a child or young person has cancer, their family may be asked if they would be willing to take part in a clinical trial. This can be a difficult decision to make and researchers want to learn more about the experiences of families who have been invited to join a trial.

In this study, they will talk to parents and children over 8 years old. They will also interview a number of healthcare professionals who are involved in talking to families about clinical trials to find out what they think.

Please note – your child won’t get any direct benefit from taking part in this study, nor will it affect their treatment in any way. But the findings may help to show the best way to involve children and families in trials, making sure that their wishes are taken into account.

"We believed that with the clinical trial, Katie had the best chance of recovery. Without these trials, amazing new treatments may never be found."
