Undertaking a programme of SWATs within paediatric trials – what we’ve learnt from the process

A ‘Study Within A Trial’ (SWAT) is a self-contained study embedded within an ongoing trial, which aims to establish evidence to improve the management and delivery of trials in healthcare. Increasing numbers of SWATs have been undertaken in recent years although very few have been undertaken within paediatric trials. The TRECA (TRials Engagement in Children and Adolescents) study is a programme of SWATs within six paediatric trials in the UK, aiming to evaluate the impact of providing trial information using multimedia compared to traditional printed participant information. This webinar will cover some of the challenges we faced in the TRECA study, and how we overcame them.

The TRECA study is funded by NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research Programme (14/21/21).
