Uppsala Monitoring Centre

Most of us want healthcare to be both patient-centric and evidence-based. But are those two goals compatible? Can we tailor healthcare to our unique circumstances­, while relying on the average statistical measurements that scientific evidence is based on? Emerging ideas in the philosophy of science are challenging a rigid reliance on evidence-based medicine and offering a more nuanced understanding of patient safety.

This episode is part of the Uppsala Reports Long Reads series – the most topical stories from UMC’s pharmacovigilance magazine, brought to you in audio format. Find the text version here

Tune in to find out:

  • What causal dispositions are
  • Why pharmacovigilance would benefit from a new approach to causality
  • How to promote trans-disciplinary approaches to medical inquiry
