Patients in numbers
a public lecture by
Professor Natasha Maurits
University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands
Monday 30 January 2017 at 6 pm
EMMTEC Lecture Theatre, Brayford Pool Campus, University of Lincoln
No-one likes to be considered by their doctor as a number. However, in this lecture I will try to convince you that it is common for doctors to consider their patients in numbers and that this practice is actually very useful and helpful. I will also illustrate by some examples of my own research in neurology that this practice can be supported and further improved with the help of mathematics.
Natasha Maurits is a trained mathematician. She is a Professor of Clinical Neuroengineering at Department of Neurology, University Medical Center Groningen in the Netherlands.
