Media Reporting of Medical Advances: Helpful or Misleading?
May 23, 2018
The media and medicine have different perspectives. At least in part, this is due to a preference for individual human stories over detailed analysis of results.
This lecture will use examples of how the public may be misled and consider the implications of such misunderstanding.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/media-reporting-of-medical-advances-helpful-or-misleading
