about this item

This graduate level text applies discrete event simulation to health technology assessment, walking through the process of selecting a probability distribution, creating an entity event list and model event calendar, specifying events, defining the population, assigning attributes, measuring time, representing intervention effects, and recording information. A simple example demonstrates the design of a model for assessing a new cancer treatment using the Excel spreadsheet program and the specialized simulation package Arena. The last chapter presents a case study of a discrete event simulation applied to screening strategies for breast cancer surveillance. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
