The talks ranged from how science, and proven experience, are used in medical practice and the interplay of science and proven experience in medical eviden evaluations to questions about how to reconcile the two concepts in research on health.
The afternoon gave rise to many interesting discussions and perhaps also new questions about the intriguing concept of science and proven experience.
This was the first half day conference in a planned series in which the next event will be June 17, about science and proven experience and law.
