AbstractIn its report, Safeguarding Children: Pediatric Medical Countermeasure Research, the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) advised the U.S. government on the ethical considerations involved in evaluating and conducting pediatric medical countermeasure research both before a bioterrorism attack (pre-event) and after an attack (post-event). This module looks at issues of informed consent with children, and includes background readings, discussion questions and classroom exercises.
