Louise B. Russell featured editor of Medical Decision Making, July/August 2011

Louise B. Russell, Research Professor in the Institute and Professor in the Department of Economics, is the featured editor of the July/August 2011 issue of Medical Decision Making titled Simulation Modeling in Health. The articles in the issue cover choices in the structure of simulation models, calibration of models, and methods for representing uncertainty. In an editorial, “Exploring the Unknown and the Unknowable with Simulation Models” Professor Russell notes that through simulation models researchers can explore the effects of intervening against disease in circumstances where it would be difficult or impossible to conduct clinical trials.

Two articles in the issue are open access: "Clarifying Differences in Natural History between Models of Screening: the Case of Colorectal Cancer," available here and "Accounting for Methodological, Structural, and Parameter Uncertainty in Decision-Analytic Models: a Practical Guide," available here .
