|2016-03-17||Toronto, Canada||Ryerson University||Can Medical Science Be Trusted if its Authors are Ghosts? Much of the apparently scientific literature on drug safety and effectiveness is ghost-written by the pharmaceutical industry, but published under the names of eminent academic researchers. Typically the research data are unavailable to experts, regulators, the legal system or the public.
David Healy will discuss what this means for the public, for patients, for doctors and for science through the story of the famous clinical trial that claimed the anti-depressant, Paxil, was safe to use for children.

Yet every case is different, and as placebos indicate, how we think also matters. Could we be healthier if we were less attached to naming illness? Can we improve our health by improving our mind, or is this an old lie peddled by quacks?
President of the World Psychiatric Association Dinesh Bhugra, radical psychopharmacologist David Healy, and philosopher and author of Illness Havi Carel put medicine on trial.
|2015-05-24||Hay on Wye||How the Light Gets in Festival||Are Hospitals Bad For Us? We ring fence NHS spending and western countries spend ever more on medicine. But a third of all deaths are due to medical intervention and the statistics suggest it is poverty not pathogens that makes the biggest difference. Is it a fantasy to believe that medical technology can solve health? Should we focus more on social justice and less on hospital medicine?
