Risk communication

About This Video

Dr. Gigerenzer explains how the communication of risk is a central problem in medical decision making - both on the side of the doctors as well as the patients. Risk illiteracy often leads to faulty decision making with severe consequences for the individuals involved. By using natural frequencies instead of conditional probabilities in the communication of risk, many of these problems could be avoided.
