Event description
Join us for an evening of engaging conversation and learn how our human biases are impacting our health and what we can do about it.

About this Event

Human behaviour is at the foundation of healthcare. Whether it pertains to encouraging people to eat healthier, exercise more, or adhere to medication, the common thread among all of these challenges is behaviour. In this session attendees will receive an introduction on the application of Behavioural Economics in healthcare. Based out of a proprietary systematic review conducted by BEworks, this session will review the current state of BE and Healthcare research, providing attendees with insight on the decision-making biases and heuristics that impact patients and health practitioners and what we can do about them.
