What's the talk about?

Some medicines are excellent, some are worse than useless. How do we sort the wheat from the chaff?
Steve Haigh is a Medicines Information Pharmacist whose day job is to help to keep the chaff out of Nottinghamshire NHS hospitals.
The talk goes through the history of medicines, the design of clinical trials to work out what works best, and the fascinating problem of the placebo effect.
And what discussion of Bad Medicine and the placebo effect wouldn’t touch on the King of Nonsense, homeopathy?
