European Congress for Homeopathy fast approaching!

There is just a short time remaining until we meet friends and colleagues at the European Congress for Homeopathy in Vienna. The congress will be introduced with a speech by Dr Robert Hahn, who will discuss homeopathy from a scientific and sceptic point of view.

robert-hahnRobert G. Hahn MD PhD (pictured) is a physician and researcher from Stockholm, Sweden. He has never worked with homeopathy but scrutinised several meta-analyses of homeopathy performed by homeopaths and skeptics in a review article published in 2013. Hahn criticised several of the meta-analyses with negative outcomes for being biased. He suggests that skeptics generally tend to distort the evidence for homeopathy instead of openly declaring that their problem is the lack of a clear biological model for its action.

Dr. Hahn worked for 15 years as a hospital clinician before becoming professor of anaesthesia and intensive care at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. After 13 years in that position, Hahn now performs the role of Research Director at a smaller hospital in the Stockholm area. His current research includes development and evaluation of clinically useful methods of monitoring fluid therapy and the detection of preoperative dehydration. Robert Hahn has authored more than 300 scientific articles and edited several books, the most recent “Clinical Fluid Therapy in the Perioperative Setting” (2nd Ed, Cambridge University Press 2016). He has an interest in the scientific validity of the argumentation for and against homeopathy among believers and disbelievers.
