The Mystery of the Clinical Trials

The Mystery of the Clinical Trials

Investigate about clinical trial and why they are important to youth.

For your first assignment, I have an important matter for you to investigate. Are you up to the challenge? I just found out that there aren't enough kids participating in research studies. Can you help DigiKnowIt News learn more about clinical trials and why it is important for kids to participate?

Know Your Rights

Know Your Rights

Learn about kids' rights and safety when in a clinical trial.

This assignment is called “Know your Rights.” We have learned from some of our Digiknowit news followers that they want to know what rights they have as clinical trial participants. Can you find out this information for them and then report about it in your next blog post? Your readers are counting on you to really do some deep investigating!

The Good and the Not-So-Good

The Good and the Not-So-Good

Examine what can happen if kids choose to be in a clinical trial.

DigiKnowIt News recently learned that in a clinical trial, there are good and not-so-good things that can happen. Knowing what these are might help your readers make the difficult decision to participate in a trial or not. Can you find out what some of these things might be, then write a blog post to share this information with your followers?

Who to Talk to

Who to Talk to

Discover who is involved in a clinical trial and what questions you can ask.

For this assignment, we want kids to know they have a voice in their clinical trial. We need you to investigate who they can talk to about clinical trials before they start one, while they are in one, and after it ends. It is also important for them to know more about how to make the important decision to leave a clinical trial, if necessary. Can you help us with this investigation?
