The History and Philosophy of Evidence-Based Health Care
Carl Heneghan and Jonathan Livingstone Banks
Monday, 04 July 2022 to Friday, 08 July 2022
Why and how did evidence-based medicine arise, and why should you accept it? These core questions are explored on our short training module, 'The History and Philosophy of Evidence-Based Health Care'. Led by Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine, Carl Heneghan, and Research Fellow, Jonathan Livingstone Banks, this module is designed to engage students with epidemiologists and researchers in defining the history, philosophy and practice of evidence-based health care.
Medical professionals will learn to think critically about the assumptions of their profession while philosophers and historians will learn about the empirical foundations of the science they contemplate.
Every 'edition' of the course is different because we explore cutting edge debates within the course based on up to date priorities - For example, how has evidence shaped the pandemic and what can we learn future history of evidence and its role in infection outbreaks.
