Hybrid seminar: Ethical perspectives on patient data, with Charlotte Blease, docent

April 15 @ 3:00 pm4:00 pm

Uppsala University are pleased to invite Charlotte Blease to talk about patient health data from the perspective of epistemic injustice.

British researcher Miranda Fricker coined the term in 2007 to highlight the various forms of injustice that arise in the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. Fricker identified two main types of epistemic injustice. The first concerns discrimination that occurs when the words expressed by individuals or groups of individuals are not taken seriously. The second type of discrimination occurs when there is a collective knowledge gap that makes it difficult for individuals or groups of people to communicate their experiences or to understand them better.

Furthermore, Charlotte outlines how these ideas relate to access to patients’ electronic health records online and also to the secondary use of electronic health records for machine learning purposes.
