Welcome to another episode of The Words Matter Podcast.
In this episode of the CauseHealth Series I'm speaking with Professor Ivor Ralph Edwards about his Chapter 9 of the CauseHealth book (download for FREE here) titled Causality and Dispositionality in Medical Practice (read his chapter here). Ralph is Professor of Medicine and Senior Advisor (and Former Director) at the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, the WHO Collaborating Centre for International Drug Monitoring.
He has worked in clinical toxicology in the fields of drug abuse, acute and chronic poisoning, toxicity from industrial chemicals as well as adverse drug reactions. He now works on medical and legal aspects of causality evaluation, as well as issues of risk and benefit evaluation and data mining approaches to support signal detection and evaluation.
