Trying to do more good than harm in health care

Description

The 2012 Wolfson College Haldane Lecture was given by leading health services researcher Sir Iain Chalmers, currently Coordinator of the James Lind Initiative, Oxford, UK. Sir Iain Chalmers is a leading health services researcher who has spent the past 30 years trying to ensure that health professionals and patients have free access to unbiased evidence of the effects of medical and other treatments. Sir Iain qualified in medicine in the mid-1960s. He practised as a clinician for seven years in the UK and the Gaza Strip, and then became a full time health services researcher with a particular interest in assessing the effects of health care.

12.524 Mechanical Properties of Rocks (MIT) 12.524 Mechanical Properties of Rocks (MIT)

Description

12.524 is a survey of the mechanical behavior of rocks in natural geologic situations. Topics will include a brief survey of field evidence of rock deformation, physics of plastic deformation in minerals, brittle fracture and sliding, and pressure-solution processes. We will compare results of field petrologic and structural studies to data from experimental structural geology. 12.524 is a survey of the mechanical behavior of rocks in natural geologic situations.

21H.907 Trials in History (MIT) 21H.907 Trials in History (MIT)

Description

This seminar examines a number of famous trials in European and American history. It considers the salient issues (political, social, cultural) of several trials, the ways in which each trial was constructed and covered in public discussions at the time, the ways in which legal reasoning and storytelling interacted in each trial and in the later retellings of the trial, and the ways in which trials serve as both spectacle and a forum for moral and political reasoning. Students have an opportunity to study one trial in depth and present their findings to the class. This seminar examines a number of famous trials in European and American history.

From inspiration to publication: bumps along the road (as part of the Postgraduate Programme in Evidence-Based Health Care)

Description

Dr Helen Ashdown is a GP and Clinical Researcher in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford. During her clinical academic training, she designed and led a study to investigate whether pain on going over speed bumps when travelling to hospital is a good diagnostic test for appendicitis. This was published in the 2012 Christmas edition of the British Medical Journal. She will describe her own bumpy journey through the process of answering a clinical question - navigating the tortuous course from research question, ethics, study design and recruitment through to Christmas radio shows.
