Research Volunteers Forum
Research Volunteers Workshop
Friday 10 June 2011
University College London
A discussion meeting on the role and contribution of volunteer research subjects in biomedical research, with the focus on how volunteers themselves understand and explain their participation was held at UCL in June this year. We aimed to generate discussion among a small number (around 40) invited participants from research, advocacy, management and policy backgrounds concerning the implications of a better understanding of (patient) volunteers’ views for research management, ethics and policies aiming at increasing participation in clinical studies.
