Historically, great harms were caused to the health of the Kings and Queens of England. Charles II died suddenly from an apoplectic fit. In the days between the fit and his death, he was subjected to bloodletting, purging and cupping - all to no avail. Could today's evidence-based interventions have changed the outcome?
Featuring presentations by Dr Jeffrey Aronson, Dr Marcy McCall MacBain, and Professor Carl Heneghan from the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, and chaired by Professor Tilli Tansey, School of History, Queen Mary University of London, this event is in conjunction with Meeting Minds in Oxford, the University's Alumni Weekend (15th - 17th September 2017).
