Taken directly from RCPCH:The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has published the Infants’, Children’s and Young People’s Child Health Research Charter. This Research Charter has been developed by the RCPCH with children, young people, parents, carers and healthcare professionals, to provide guiding principles for anyone; whether that be a child, young person, parent, doctor, nurse, allied healthcare professional, researcher or anyone working with and involving children and young people in research.

The Research Charter consists of seven guiding principles to provide a framework for anyone working with children, young people and families to carry out research. In addition to the Research Charter, the RCPCH has developed a “what you need to know” and “external resources and useful links” guide to support children, young people, families and health professionals to talk about child health research and guide discussions to ensure everyone is clear on what is happening, when and why child health research is important.
