Date for the diary: Healthy Futures: Medical Regulation and Human Agency

Healthy Futures: Medical Regulation and Human Agency

21st & 22nd January, 2010

Convenors: Professor David Spiegelhalter and Dr Tim Lewens

Regulatory agencies routinely make cost-benefit analyses of new medical products and treatments. Yet there is little agreement on how such analyses ought to be performed, and utilitarian paradigms are seldom applied in other areas of medical decision-making. Envisaging futures is also an integral part of planning health care (e.g. the ‘obesity epidemic’ or pandemic influenza). Predictions based on bio-statistical data-analysis are underpinned by numerous assumptions. How can we quantify medical uncertainties, and how should they impact on policy?
