2nd ‘Trials within Cohorts’ (TwiCs) symposium @yorkshirecohort @CLAHRC_N_Thames @ScHARRSheffield

We invite you to the 2nd ‘Trials within Cohorts’ (TwiCs) symposium

(7-8th November, 2016, at the Wellcome Trust, London, UK).

This international symposium will explore ethical issues relating to TwiCs designs, an approach which embeds multiple trials within a cohort or register, tailoring the information disclosed to participants (i.e. according to their group allocation)

Building on the first TwiCs symposium (2014), this symposium brings together triallists, leaders in bioethics, informed consent research and ethics board experts to discuss and debate key ethical questions relating to the design.

What are TwiCs?
