Overdiagnosis and overtreatment are causes for increasing concern

The XXIX Paulo Scientific Symposium will bring together a group of outstanding international scientific experts to raise awareness of problems related to medical excess and to identify the best sustainable evidence-based practices. The Symposium aims to find methods for eliminating sources of bias from clinical trials and guidelines, to advance the dissemination of accurate scientific information and to promote critical societal debate about medicine.

Too Much Medicine is organized in collaboration with the Preventing Overdiagnosis Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Aug. 20-22, 2018
