How do we effectively communicate risk and uncertainty? This question plagues many fields of science, as we try to help individuals, communities, governments and businesses make rational decisions based on the best research available. This session will present the latest literature in risk and uncertainty communication.
The session has two 15-minute talks, with 15 minutes of Q&A and discussion to conclude.
- Communication practices of government organisations for environmental health risks from chemical pollution: A scoping review – Madeleine Thomas
- Effective communication of uncertainty for hazards and risk: identifying decision-relevant information – Emma Hudson-Doyle, Douglas Paton, David Johnston and Richard Smith
