DNUS (De Nieuwe Utrechtse School)

We are happy to announce a new collaboration with De Nieuwe Utrechtse School. In the upcoming months, JOTE and De Nieuwe Utrechtse School will be investigating the role of uncertainty in the medical sciences. Building upon the work done on medical narratives, chronic illness and the perception of uncertainty in medicine at De Nieuwe Utrechtse School, JOTE will be investigating how the publication of failures, inconsistencies, and uncertainties in a transparent and honest fashion can help to change the understanding of uncertainty in medicine. Through discursive reflections upon the role of uncertainty in research, we hope to encourage open conversations between students, professors, researchers, healthcare workers and patients in order to build more secure and trustworthy relationships between the same.
