iCAN: International Children’s Advisory Network
iCAN is a worldwide consortium of children’s advisory groups working together to provide a voice for children and families in health, medicine, research, and innovation through synergy, communication and collaboration.
iCAN’s chapters work both locally in partnerships with children’s hospitals and communities, and collaborate together network-wide to have a global impact. Through our chapters, youth-led councils, committees and focus groups, we address needs of pediatric clinical research and healthcare, influence state and federal regulations, and advocate for pediatric patients across the globe. Our goal is to educate the world about the importance of children’s involvement in the development of research trials, and to provide our children and families with resources and opportunities to provide their feedback and input into studies and products intended for children.
