    Trish Greenhalgh

This conference brings together practitioners, guidelines networks and philosophers of science to address the general problem of how to put the tools of philosophy to use in improving the development and implementation of healthcare guidelines. Keynote speakers: Nancy Cartwright, Trish Greenhalgh, Mike Kelly and Brian Broom.

Next CauseHealth event: The Guidelines Challenge

The conference takes place in Oxford, on 3-4 October 2017 and registration is now open.

Specific topics include questions about how guidelines should meet the challenges of:

  • Multi-morbidity
  • Individual variation
  • Complex illnesses
  • Multiple diagnoses from common symptoms
  • Investigating the mechanisms underlying the onset of illnesses
  • Amalgamating evidence from the medical literature with patient’s narrative
  • Moving beyond the empirical ideal of value neutrality in medical research
  • Integrating a whole-person, patient-centered view in evidence-based health care
  • Finding the space for experts and patients ‘implicit knowledge’

We aim to reach a wide, interdisciplinary audience of medical researchers, practitioners, guideline developers, philosophers of medicine, communicators and patients.

The program is available on the CauseHealth webpage.
