Kellogg College along with the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine, the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and the Kellogg College Centre for Governance and Transparency will present a series of talks themed 'Harms in Healthcare' with guest speakers Ben Goldacre, Jeffrey Aronson, Carl Heneghan, and Kamal Mahtani. Talks will cover self-interests and research, combined with increased global competition that are currently leading to substantial harms in healthcare. In addition, a growing body of research on adverse drug reactions has uncovered that there is considerable room for improvement in the public understanding of this little known area. We will question whether medicine is broken – do patients and the public ever fully understand what doctors, academics and regulators have been permitted to do to them and what would their reaction be? We'll also discuss the impact of a £500 million deficit in the public purse from stockpiling the controversial drug Tamiflu. This event is part of the University of Oxford's alumni weekend. The event is open to all, including members of the public. For details, link here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harms-in-healthcare-tickets-17510637789
