In this podcast, the Royal College of Physicians brings  together interested parties to discuss value in healthcare.
What will patient engagement look like in the context of randomised control trials, and are they still the gold standard in research?
Should physicians push for a greater personal responsibility for health, and how does an individual’s social determinants factor into this decision? Should industries that contribute to poor health pay more directly for the delivery of care? The podcast will address these dilemmas, and consider how social determinants beyond our control can effect our idea of who is responsible for poor health.
How can we empower doctors, patients and carers to make shared decisions about care and treatment that balance duration and quality of life? This podcast aims to answer this dilemma, and break down the taboo of death.
