When Doctors Prescribe Misinformation

Date TBA

Do right and wrong answers still exist in medicine? Social platforms struggle to make policies about users losing platform privileges when spreading harmful misinformation. But what about the role of medical institutions in determining whether doctors who are spreading false medical information should face disciplinary action based on the harm to patients? Richard Baron and Wasim Khaled unpack the role of institutions in tackling medical misinformation and how to think about measuring harm.
