Do you feel tired in the morning? You might suffer from low testosterone syndrome!

Is your child very active? It could be ADHD!

A cyst was incidentally found in the liver - is it serious?

Or - is it all just overdiagnosis causing you unnecessary harm?

Find out more by joining this 3-hour introductory seminar on December 4th, 2019 (9am - 12pm) at the University of Sydney, the day before the Preventing Overdiagnosis Conference (5th  - 7th  of December).

The seminar is hosted by the Junior Researcher Group in Preventing Overdiagnosis and aims to give a broad introduction to overdiagnosis for those new to the concept.

The seminar is FREE for anyone interested in overdiagnosis and will cover 3 broad topics:

  1. 1. Definitions of overdiagnosis
  2. 2. Overdiagnosis in cancer screening programmes
  3. 3. Expanding disease definitions, indication creep and overtreatment

These topics will be followed by an informal discussion on how to communicate overdiagnosis, drivers of overdiagnosis and potential solutions to prevent it.
