Christer Mjåset's talk addresses one of the biggest problems in Western medicine: over-treatment. Although doctors rely on standards and recommendations in medicine on all levels, variation in the use of diagnostic tools and treatment is a widespread phenomenon. What can you do as a patient to battle over-treatment and how can you benefit from taking it seriously?
Christer Mjåset is a neurosurgeon and the Vice President of the Norwegian Medical Association. He is also a published author of five books and an experienced lecturer on different medical topics.
