Children and young people's participation is necessary and unavoidable to develop medications that are safe and efficacious with robust evidence for age groups, diseases, routes and doses. Consent of the parent and assent of the participant are not always aligned and should both be given full respect and consideration.There is a paucity of literature surrounding the child or young person's experience of participation in clinical trials (Crane et al, 2018) although it is acknowledged that each experience is unique to the individual (Barned et al, 2018) without further research it is unclear whether a commonality of experience exists.
