Rethinking the role of medicine
20 August 2008
Grand Challenges in Health & Medicine Public Lecture Series 2008
Speaker: Professor Stephen Leeder, Co-Director Menzies Centre for Health Policy, Medical Foundation Fellow, University of Sydney
The nanotechnological and genetic revolutions will change all phases of medical practice, and in all places. Meanwhile the challenge of chronic disease necessitates new ways of ordering health care, and new approaches to prevention. The humane mission of medicine - to relieve suffering - will be challenged by these changes, and we need to be ready to respond.
