Uncertainty and iatrogenesis

8 July 2019

Although medicine and health care help to alleviate or cure many illnesses, they can also be a source of harm. While this harm is sometimes unavoidable, there are also instances when it is preventable.


This course, on iatrogenics or the adverse effects or complications of medical treatment, will give participants the opportunity to learn about initiatives designed to improve current understanding of this subject, and to improve professional practice through training. It will also consider how iatrogenics influences the use of health services, will cover the role of the media and will discuss the role of the legal system in addressing undesirable outcomes of professional practice.


Day: 8 July, 10:00 to 18:00
