Can minors be involved as patient partners in health research?

Yes. If children or youth are the study population, you should seek ways to involve them along with their parents or guardians. You may also include young adults who experienced the condition as a minor. The proposed engagement activity should be appropriate for their age and condition. For ideas on how to involve children and youth, you may search the PCORI Engagement in Health Research Literature Explorer and PCORI Engagement Tool and Resource Repository
