Description

Colloquium 3: Applications of the updated BPSM: (I) Theorising the social gradient in health

The Marmot Review of health inequalities “does not have much medicine in it”. Meaning: the aetiological risks for many kinds of health condition & implications for prevention targets are social and psychological – as well as biological. How e.g. can lower (perceived) social status make you sick? These issues will be tackled using the updated biopsychosocial model outlined in the previous lecture. We will note that the familiar current hypothesised stress-related mechanisms are thoroughly biopsychosocial.

This is event is the third in a series of four Sowerby Philosophy and Medicine colloquia with Prof Derek Bolton of King's College London.
