Medically Unexplained Symptoms: Shaky Evidence, Shaky Practice with Dr David Tuller

Monday, March 16, 2020 at 2 PM – 4:15 PM

The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield, S1 4FW

Medically Unexplained Symptoms might be useful as a descriptive name for the large category of phenomena that lack a proven patho-physiological pathway, but in the medical literature, and from some who present themselves as experts in the field, it is framed as an actual diagnosis that can be delivered with full confidence rather than a provisional construct based on the current state of medical understanding.

Dr Tuller, Senior Fellow in Journalism and Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, explains why this shaky evidence is leading to shaky practice, and the impact on patients.

As always, this event will be livestreamed through our Facebook page for those who are unable to attend in person, so give us a like to make sure you don't miss it.

The Circle is in Sheffield city centre, off Division Street (behind Costa Coffee). Walk along Division Street (away from the City Hall and John Lewis) and as soon as you reach Costa Coffee, turn right onto Rockingham Lane.
