The Uses and Abuses of Quantification in Healthcare
July 21 - July 22
Numbers and quantifying operations guide the social, ethical, and financial valuation of medical interventions at all levels of healthcare policy. How have particular measures and models of evidence currently prevalent in healthcare developed? What are the practical effects of the use of such measures and models, and what philosophical issues do they raise? Convened by the Limits of the Numerical research group at CRASSH, this two-day conference brings together scholars working across history, literature, philosophy, political science, sociology and STS to engage these and related questions.
This is a conference convened by the Limits of the Numerical Project at CRASSH.
