George Loewenstein, Ph.D., will deliver the keynote speech at an Indiana Health Law Review Symposium on patients’ role in new health care models from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, March 8, at the Wynne Courtroom and Atrium, Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York Street, Indianapolis.
This year’s symposium examines the extent to which patients are trusted as emerging models of health care and health care financing place greater emphasis on patient choice and engagement. Questions include whether patients be more responsible for the cost of their health care, whether emerging technologies and health care models will result in patients acting more like consumers and to what extent should patients exercise greater control and assume greater responsibility for their own health such that blaming or shaming patients becomes accepted strategies for improving health?
Dr. Loewenstein is the Herbert A. Simon Professor of Economics and Psychology in the Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. His presentation, “Are We Willing to Trust Patients? Models of Responsibility, Consumerism and Blame” is scheduled from 9 to 10 a.m.
Additional speakers include Tracy Gunter, M.D., associate professor of clinical psychiatry at the IU School of Medicine and adjunct professor of Law, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law and David Orentlicher, M.D., JD, Samuel R. Rosen Professor of Law and co-director of the Hall Center for Law and Health at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law and adjunct professor of medicine at the IU School of Medicine. For a complete list of speakers and topics, see the complete agenda.
