Abstract

[Teenagers and young adults (TYA) are less likely to be entered into cancer clinical trials and research compared to children and some older adults. This pattern of lower inclusion rates is reported internationally regardless of healthcare system and is thought to be related to suboptimal improvements in outcomes for this group. This Chapter describes, including two case studies, why clinical trials are important, what we can learn from existing literature and how young people can be involved in research design and study conduct.]
