Event description

Description

A what-if tool for prevention policy, planning and evaluation - a post-conference satellite event of the Public Health Prevention Conference 2018

The Prevention Centre is pioneering the use of dynamic simulation modelling to guide public health policy, planning and evaluation in Australia.

This symposium will present the findings of our models in the areas of tobacco control, childhood overweight and obesity and gestational diabetes, and will canvas future directions for dynamic simulation modelling in Australia.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at those who use dynamic simulation modelling, policy makers who may need to know more about our work, and researchers who are interested in participating in or using dynamic simulation modelling.

You will have the opportunity to network, share experiences, provide feedback and discuss how best to build national capacity in this area.

​About dynamic simulation modelling

Dynamic simulation models are sophisticated computer models that enable decision makers to test the likely outcome of interventions or combinations of interventions before they are implemented in the real world.

Based on a variety of evidence sources such as research, expert knowledge, practice experience and data, the models are able to simulate various policy scenarios over time to measure both the effect on individuals and the system as a whole.

Catering: Lunch will be provided from 12 noon. Networking and refreshments from 2.30 - 3 pm.
