Using Whole Disease Modelling to Inform Resource Allocation Decisions in Schizophrenia Services - 29 March 2023

Please note that this event has passed.

Abstract: Whole disease models (WDMs) are large-scale, system-level models which can evaluate multiple decision questions across an entire care pathway. Whilst WDMs can offer several advantages as a platform for undertaking economic analyses, the development of a WDM requires a significant initial investment of time and resources and presents additional challenges for model verification and validation.

During this talk, Lily will discuss:

  1. The motivations for her to develop a WDM for schizophrenia services in the UK
  2. Methods for developing the schizophrenia WDM
  3. Reflections on pros and cons of the whole disease modelling approach​

More details about the schizophrenia WDM can be found here
