Legal and Ethical Issues Surrounding the Involvement of Children in Health Care Research

Date: 20 and 21 September 2007 Time: 12.30 pm

Centre for Bioethics and Medical Law and Lancaster University Law School

This event focuses on the topic of involving children in health care research which is controversial, particularly in the light of the events at Alder Hey Children's Hospital and Bristol Royal Infirmary. Interestingly, however, it is a relatively under-explored topic, especially within UK legal literature. In this seminar we are seeking to instigate discussion and further investigation of the ethical and legal implications of involving children in health care research.

The seminar represents the early stages of an on-going research collaboration and will begin with a one-day seminar in Lancaster that has been sponsored by the Modern Law Review Seminars scheme. The seminar is designed to bring together invited participants and other academics, clinicians and researchers to identify, discuss and debate key legal and ethical issues within the area.

Led by Professor Hazel Biggs and Dr Sara Fovargue
