Welcome to iCAN KIDS Albania!

 

KIDS Albania is promoted by TEDDY European Network of Excellence for Paediatric Research thanks to a collaboration between Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche (CVBF) – Dege e shoqerise se huaj, Albanian Branch Office of CVBF and the University Hospital Center Tirana “Mother Teresa”, Service of Paediatrics.

Youth of KIDS Albania are grateful and very interested to this initiative. They are learning more about biomedicine, research, clinical trials, and innovation thanks to a professional team that train them.

KIDS Albania aims to improve pediatric medicine, working together and closely with researchers to advocate children in healthcare, to raise the awareness about the importance of children’s involvement in the clinical trials, and to improve the communication between healthcare professionals and young patients. More information about KIDS Albania is available here.

 

"What makes our iCAN KIDS Albania Chapter Great"

KIDS Albania is based in Tirana and is composed of around 18 young people, age range 11-18 years, willing to advocate for children in healthcare especially participants in clinical trials. 

 

Members of KIDS Albania have contributed in the development of a serious game ‘My Clinical Trial Center’ as a training tool for explaining through play to young patients what clinical trials are and the importance of conducting them in Paediatrics.

 

The team was also involved in the revision and translation of the surveys on oral formulations and paediatric devices, developed in the framework of EPTRI (European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure) project.

 

KIDS Albania is delighted to be part of the great big family of iCAN.
