Philosophical Underpinnings of the Women's Health Initiative

In this lecture, Dr. Blank will discuss the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), one of the last generation’s most influential clinical trials. Particular attention will be given to the technical features of the trial’s analysis, specifically the use of composite end points and blinding. This will lead to a broader consideration of utilitarian assumptions in medical research.
