Baltimore, MD 21205 View Map Link
Social science and behavioral economics have taught us a considerable amount about how decision-making can be affected by a large range of biases, intentional and unintentional. In this conversation, faculty from disciplines including behavioral economics and physician-patient relationship studies will explore issues of rationality and bias in informed consent. We will conclude by exploring a research agenda that could improve the consent process.
