Matt Low – Considering the human in front of us


Looking at the norms of science that has evolved from a neo-Humean philosophical stance and how that may not be sufficient in the context of complexity. Looking at alternative philosophical positions – what this might look like and how it might be it be operationalised through balancing the normative (science) and the narrative (humanistic) aspects of practice.


A discussion about how philosophy can help our clinical practice and how the philosophical stance we take changes how we practice in the face of clinical complexity.

Le Pub Scientifique are exceptionally excited to welcome Matt Low to talk about causality, the notions of evidence and how we might implement this is our clinical reasoning and decision making.
