Description


The Centre for Healthcare Innovation is hosting a Grand Round featuring presenter Dr. Deborah Marshall.

Topic: Simulation Modeling: An Overview and Application in Osteoarthritis

Thursday, May 8, 2014, 1pm - 2 pm

Dr. Marshall will describe and illustrate applied simulation modeling approaches to inform health care delivery, using osteoarthritis as an example.

Objectives:

  • To describe alternative modeling methods and tools
  • To illustrate applications in simulation modeling as an approach to inform health care delivery planning
  • To show how simulation modeling can be used to balance the tradeoffs between accessibility, effectiveness and efficiency across the continuum of care, through medical and surgical management and consider the intended and unintended consequences of interventions before implementation

About the speaker: Deborah holds a Canada Research Chair, Health Services and Systems Research as an Associate Professor at the University of Calgary and Arthur J.E. Child Chair of Rheumatology outcomes Research in the McCaig Institute of Bone and Joint Health and the Institute of Public Health.

She has experience in technology assessment agencies, academia and pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry research settings in Canada, the United States, and Europe.  Her research program focuses on health technology assessment – specifically patient preferences, cost-effectiveness analysis, and health systems modeling.
