27 May 2016: Dissenting Diagnosis

Dr. Arun Gadre and Dr. Abhay Shukla

Complaints about the state of medical care are increasing in today's India; whether it is unnecessary investigations, botched operations or expensive, sometimes even harmful, medication. But while the unease is widespread, few outside the profession understand the extent to which the medical system is being distorted. Dr. Arun Gadre and Dr. Abhay Shukla have gathered evidence from seventy eight practicing doctors, in both the private and public medical sectors across six states and across 23 fields of medicine (including traditional), to expose the ways in which vulnerable patients are exploited by a system that promotes unscrupulous medical practices. Drawing on the frank and courageous statements of these seventy-eight doctors dismayed at the state of their profession, Dissenting Diagnosis lays bare the corruption afflicting the medical sector in India and sets out solutions for a healthier future.The duo will be talking on how Medical malpractice has pushed India to face poverty, how regulatory insufficiency has pushed medical personnel to promote "Hospital Mall" culture in medical practice.
