Whether we’re making an individual health decision or hearing a public health campaign, we all need to understand the pros and cons of different options open to us: the potential risks and the potential benefits. So how can healthcare professionals communicate such evidence? How can they help translate raw and meaningless numbers into useful information - and how to do it without slipping into unintended persuasion?

This free guest lecture with Dr Alexandra Freeman is from the Evidence-Based Health Care programme and is part of the Practice of Evidence-Based Health Care module.

Free and open to all. Please select the green 'register' button to book your place.
