Power versus rationality: Peter Gøtzsche on fighting conflicts of interest in medicineCPD Health Oxford Department of Continuing Education (Oxford University), Peter Gøtzsche
Rewley House, 1 Wellington Square
Oxford OX1 2JA
In this talk, Professor Peter Gøtzsche will discuss his personal experiences with, and research on, how conflicts of interest affect the results from medical studies. His experiences in this area started when he worked in the drug industry in the 1970s, and they continued after he left the industry to become one of its most vociferous critics. He has published numerous papers and books showing that drugs are much more harmful and much less effective than doctors are aware, which explains why they are the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer.
This evening lecture is given in conjunction with the History and Philosophy of Evidence-Based Healthcare accredited short course, part of the Evidence-Based Healthcare programme at the University of Oxford’s Department for Continuing Education.
