The Ethics of Clinical Trials: A Child’s View

  • Jennifer Rosato
Abstract

Rosato discusses the social influences that gave rise to the presumption in favor of children's participation in clinical trials and discusses the need for an ethical framework to guide decision-making in this context. The ethical framework proposed is one of child-centered bioethics that integrates the core bioethics principles of beneficence and autonomy with an assessment of children's needs and interests.
