Compared to adults, children only take part in medical research to a small degree because they are considered to have insufficient decision-making competence. As a result, important information about the workings of medicine in children is lacking. Irma Hein explores the issue of children’s abilities to meaningfully decide on complex and important medical options, of which, until recently, little was known except that it often proved difficult to assess a child’s competence in some clinical settings.
