Are you looking to help youth learn about clinical trials?

DigiKnowIt News can help!

Recruiting kids and teens to be in a clinical trial can be difficult. But, we know that it is important for youth to participate in clinical trials in order to advance treatments specifically for them.

This is the place to educate potential participants about pediatric clinical trials. DigiKnowIt News is a website designed to educate youth on various aspects of participating in a clinical trial. It was developed by researchers and medical health professionals along with youth and parents.

By providing youth with information about clinical trials, children learn to confidently make decisions about their health and any future opportunities to participate in a clinical trial.

DigiKnowIt News includes interactive modules, electronic comic books, and spotlight videos that covers a wide range of information:

  • Definition and importance of clinical trials for kids

  • Roles in a clinical trial

  • Questions to ask before, during, and after a clinical trial

  • Participant rights in a clinical trial

  • Benefits and risks of participating in a clinical trial

  • Different types of procedures (e.g., scans)

  • And much more!
