Anne McLaren Lecture

Can reformed communication save patients from harm?
Professor Marie Lindquist Director of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, will give this year’s Anne McLaren Lecture.
Too many patients are harmed by their therapy; too many patients fail to get full benefit from their treatment; too many of those in need of medical care do not have access to it. In a world often influenced as much by fake news, superstition and conspiracy theories as by evidence and fact, where expert opinion may be doubted or rejected, how can we reach the aspirational vision of improved patient safety? What is the nature of the relationships and communications that might help us recover lost ground and make progress?
