The CauseHealth Series: Chapter 1 - Why is Philosophy Relevant for Clinical Practice? Dr Rani Lill Anjum, Dr Samantha Copeland and Dr Elena Rocca


Welcome to another episode of The Words Matter Podcast, and the first episode of the CauseHealth Series. 

We begin our journey through the brilliant CauseHealth Book titled Rethinking Causality, Complexity and Evidence for the Unique Patient. The book can be downloaded for free here or order a hard copy online here.

This CauseHealth Series of podcasts is dedicated to the late Professor Stephen Tyreman, a member of the CauseHealth team, and a colleague of mine at the UCO (see one of his final papers on person-centred care here - absolutely brilliant paper).

In this episode I'm talking with the three Editors of the book and authors of the first chapter (see chapter 1 hereDr Rani Lill Anjum, Dr Samantha Copeland and Dr Elena Rocca.

In this episode we talk about:

  • What CauseHealth is, about the project and its aim.
  • Why is philosophy relevant for clinical practice?
  • The current challenges faced by clinicians and posed by the traditional evidence based paradigm (and the problem that CauseHealth looks to address).
  • How revising our assumptions about the nature of causation will lead to a revision what counts as evidence and the sorts of methods used to generate such evidence.
