Publication: Frontiers in Psychiatry. Year: 2020 DOI: https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyt.2020.606035 Method: Editorial. Message: Applications of systems modeling in mental health research and practice have already demonstrated value in providing improved decision support capability and a better understanding of the different ways even “evidence-based” interventions can play out in diverse systems and settings.
Factors affecting the implementation of simulation modelling in healthcare: A longitudinal case study evaluation
Peer reviewed: Yes Authors: Long, Katrina M and McDermott, F and Meadows, Graham N Publication: Journal of the Operational Research Society Year: 2020 DOI: https://doi.org/10.1080/01605682.2019.1650624 Method: A qualitative, longitudinal case study approach, grounded in Pragmatism, complexity theory, and the critical incident approach exploring implementation of simulation modelling in healthcare. Message: Twenty-three critical incidents were identified, including changes in government policy and funding, organisational context, intervention activities, project management, and staffing. The analysis revealed a complex adaptive system, where the role of specific implementation factors changed over time, and through interaction with each other.
