Ten Uncomfortable Truths Regarding Dynamic Modeling for Health Policy

This talk was delivered as part of the 2nd Annual Modeling of Complex Social Systems Symposium, 2009 at Simon Fraser University. The event was sponsored by Modeling of Complex Social Systems (MoCSSy).

MP4 video of the talk is available; also available are slides for the talk.

The workshop included a number of other talks of relevance to health modelers. The workshop abstracts can be found here. Videos of the entire workshop may still be available here.

Visitors may also be interested in other of my videos on health modeling and class-related videos, slides and recordings, on my classes/tutorials page.

I hope that you find these materials useful.
