Abstract: This symposium will examine the issue of injustice in healthcare. The main focus will be on ways in which a patient can be harmed in their capacity as an epistemic subject (a knower, reasoner or questioner). The aim is to bring together philosophers, natural science and healthcare students researching this issue, together with professionals with the aim of informing future work in this important and developing research area.
