Recently my sister-in-law sent me a diary entry written by my nephew 3 years ago following a trip to Birmingham when he took part in a study I was running. The study was looking at the acceptability of multiparticulates.
I love the fact that his favourite part was getting a wristband and a kinder egg. I should also say that on that date there was a Sikh charity giving out free food which was also a memory for him and me! The study faded into the background as part of his day. However, I do feel like I should send this to an ethics panel to show that their work is valuable as the child who participated felt comfortable with the event and there was no sign of distress. However, I also need to point out that the children were offered fruit as a reward for our study rather than chocolate and that egg was a general treat!
