International symposium on the ethics of ‘Trials within Cohorts’ (TwiCs) 8th Nov ember 2016, London, UK

Building on the first symposium , this second TwiCs symposium brought together both bioethicists and regulators with triallists using (or planning to use) the TwiCs approach. The objectives of the two day symposium were to share experiences of the design and good practice, discuss how TwiCs relate to the current ethical framework, provide a forum for debating ethical issues, explore the potential of the TwiCs approach to create learning healthcare environments, and to Identify future directions for conceptual and empirical research.
