Evening Rounds: Health Decision Science

  • This event has passed.

March 21, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Much of health research seeks to improve health by focussing on the new – new treatments, new evidence etc. In contrast, health decision science seeks to improve health by improving the choices made with available evidence – recognizing uncertainty, complexity, competing values, tradeoffs and cognitive biases can frequently lead to decision errors.

Presenter Nick Bansback will take us through examples of how decision errors that lead to poor choices in our day to day lives, and translate these into areas where decision science has the potential to improve health.


Doors open 5:30. Come have a snack, say hello, get comfortable.
Presentation begins at 6:00PM. There will be time for questions and discussion after, and we’ll wrap up at 7:00!


Nick Bansback is an Assistant Professor at the School of Population and Public Health, and a Canadian Institutes for Health Research New Investigator. Nick teaches decision science, and develops methods and applications that help patients, health professionals and policy makers make better decisions in health care. He has published over 100 peer reviewed papers and holds grants from national and international funding agencies.
