Most of my work is co-authored, which is not that common in philosophy or the humanities. In a feature article from Times Higher Education (THE), Matthew Reisz interviews a number of academic duos about their partnership. Stephen Mumford and I are also interviewed here about our 10 year collaboration as Team MumJum. Reading it, we were surprised to learn that so many of our own experiences – positive and negative – were shared by the other writing duos. Continue reading

In this blog (and linked article), physiotherapist Matt Low explains how he uses patient narratives, mind-maps and the vector model of causation to help his patients. The result is a person-centered approach that emphasises causal complexity, individual context and the idea that at least some of the causes of pain can be counteracted and thus controlled by the patient. Matt is a collaborator of CauseHealth and this is his second article describing his unique approach to chronic pain.
I was fortunate enough to have been invited by Physio First to contribute to their journal ‘In Touch’ and I chose to write about managing complexity with the different types of ‘evidence’ that we deal with in a healthcare setting.
This is an area of interest for me and I still grapple with many areas of clinical practice. These include balancing the normative and narrative examination, evaluating and weighting the evidence appropriately for the person seeking care in front of me and also reconciling and communicating the reasoning process within a person centred framework. Clearly, this is work in progress and I hope this reflective piece demonstrates a movement in this direction.
I hope this paper is informative and useful in that it shares some of my deliberations, thoughts and perspectives in clinical care.
Many thanks to Physio First http://www.physiofirst.org.uk/ for giving me the opportunity to share this.

The Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice has dedicated a section of its latest special issue to collect seven contributions which were previously presented in the CauseHealth workshop N=1. A further contribution from the same workshop was published by the same journal last year.

This is a discussion of an article by J.C. Crabbe, D. Wahlsten and B.C. Dudek on the ‘Genetics of Mouse Behavior: Interactions with Laboratory Environment‘, Science, 284, 1670-1672, 1999. It is written for the course PHI302 Causation in Science at Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Mauseth is a Master student in Ecology at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resource Management, with 170 credits in biology and an additional 15 (soon 20) credits in Philosophy. I asked her for permission to include the discussion in my blog as an example of how philosophical reflections about causation in science can be done in practice. Continue reading
