IQWiG Autumn Symposium 2009

Medicine - belief and knowledge / Health care system - experiencing and funding it

What value judgements are made in medical science? How many medical decisions are based on scientific proof, on proven knowledge? Can the pharmaceutical industry carry out objective research? Can we justify any rationing of health resources? What reforms are necessary to improve health care?

Leading health researchers discussed these and other questions at IQWiG's Autumn Symposium in Cologne on 27 and 28 November.
