Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Despite federal initiatives to increase research and expand data about the effectiveness and safety of medications in children, data are still limited for this population. One of the most salient barriers to conducting pediatric clinical trials involves participant recruitment. In this article, we summarize recruitment challenges including a lack of research infrastructure, the need to properly define appropriate use of incentives and payments, and inconsistencies in the current use of payments and incentives. We also searched the Centerwatch.com and ClinicalTrials.gov databases for updated data on current practices in pediatric participant compensation/payment. We provide recommendations for tackling current barriers to recruiting and retaining children and families in clinical trials.
