Fair tests from the North East that changed your NHS experience

Fair tests from the North East that changed your NHS experience

Professor Craig Ramsay will give a talk about the history of a "fair test" from ancient Greece, via the 17th Century to the present day in Aberdeen

New health treatments and medicines are "scientifically proven using tests", but this is not new, in fact it is ancient.

We test new medicines and treatments to see if they work. Surely, such tests are always “fair” in health care? Unfortunately, even with the best intentions for people, there are many examples of new and old treatment decisions that were not informed by reliable evidence about what works. This results in harm. The question is can we ensure a fair test of new treatments to reduce this uncertainty?

Professor Craig Ramsay from the Health Services Research Unit at University of Aberdeen will  showcase North East fair tests and illustrate that it can take a long time for many patients and the public, to get to an answer.
