conference paper description
This paper investigates a recent FDA hearing on the popular breast cancer drug, Avastin. Using rhetorical stasis analysis, the authors demonstrate how the FDA hearing procedures exclude patient representatives from the decision-making process. The results of this study are suggestive for the development of more inclusive hybrid forums for technical decision-making.
