Curso magistral

Disease-mongering and public health
Ray Moynihan
Conjoint lecturer
University of Newcastle

Coorganiza: Escuela de Salud Pública de Menorca
Lugar: Escuela de Salud Pública de Menorca, Isla del Lazareto, Mahón

Brief description of objectives and contents of the course:
The course will aim to deepen students' understanding of the public health problem of disease-mongering: the process of widening the boundaries of illness in order to expand markets for treatments.
It will examine the different forms of disease-mongering, by using several case studies involving high-profile medical conditions. It will also employ humour, and students will create and promote their own new disease. Finally it will analyse the public-health implications of disease-mongering and possible policy-responses to the problem, from a range of perspectives.
The course will also look at the evidence about the financial relationships between health professionals and the pharmaceutical industry which are central to this problem, and reveal how those relationships are being renegotiated world wide.
Student profile:
Students would include health professionals from the academic, clinical and policy sector, influential journalists reporting on healthcare, and representatives from consumer advocacy groups engaged with public health.
