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.
