A written report of a maximum of words providing the rationale for the modelling approach, the conclusions reached and a discussion on the robustness of these results. Constructing an executable Simul8 model to simulate a complex problem 2. An interactive oral examination - this will allow the student to discuss and demonstrate how revised or new information relating to the problem could be modelled and how these are likely to affect the conclusions that were reached within the original report.

Students will also be expected to undertake approximately hours of independent study, including preparation for tutorials, preparation for the assignment and oral examination, and further recommended reading. Constructing an executable Simul8 model to simulate a complex problem 2. The oral examination will be 20 minutes duration.
This module aims to produce students who will be able to undertake simulation projects to a professional level. The second part of the module focuses on the approaches for, and benefits of, using Simul8 to develop health economic models as an alternative to other approaches such as cohort Markov modelling. Small assignments for formative assessment are set throughout the module and feedback will be given during tutorials; the feedback will not be documented.
An example project includes an assessment of a 7-day turn-around for the reporting of cervical screening results using discrete event simulation. Tutorial sessions and interaction within the 10 lectures will allow the candidate to discuss the modelling techniques used, the selection of input parameters, the results and the ultimate conclusions that can be drawn from the modelled results.
An interactive oral examination - this will allow the student to discuss and demonstrate how revised or new information relating to the problem could be modelled and how these are likely to affect the conclusions that were reached within the original report. Independent study will primarily be self-directed. From the fundamentals of a basic model the course will progress to modelling complex systems, verification, interpreting output and approaches for minimising model run time.
Interpret outputs from a simulation model 4.

These learning and teaching methods will reinforce learning outcomes and provide practical experience of applying some concepts. This module provides an in-depth review of simulation rationale, techniques and methodologies with a particular focus on discrete event simulation and their practical application to inform healthcare decision making.
The methods outlined in this module will be transferable to decision problems in settings other than healthcare. Students will be taught the different types and uses of uncertainty analyses.
The first part of the module focuses on developing such a resource-constrained simulation model, including a first introduction of how to use the simulation package Simul8. The module will be both theoretically-based and practically-based with the simil8 of the Simul8 software package.
The Advanced Simulation Methods module teaches a different technique, Discrete event simulation, DES which can be used for modelling where there is a service design aim, such as modelling patient flows through clinical pathways or capacity planning in a hospital. Lectures will be augmented by practical modelling sessions.
The module will be delivered predominantly through a series of 10 x 2 hours taught lectures. Define, formulate, construct and resolve simulation models of complex systems within Simul8 2.

In such cases, the pattern of arrival times and capacity constraints are important factors when evaluating alternative options for change.
Key themes, both in learning and application within a model will include modelling complex systems, verification of the model, interpreting the output and approaches for minimising model run time. Students will develop an individual-level cost-effectiveness model in Simul8, including the incorporation of discounting and probabilistic sensitivity analysis PSA. The prior 'Cost-Effectiveness for HTA' module in the Autumn semester teaches markov modelling and decision-tree modelling methods.
A written report of a maximum of words providing the rationale for the modelling approach, the conclusions reached and a discussion on the robustness of these results.
Lectures will introduce students to the key theory and methods, covering learning outcomes tutorixl Describe the limitations of simulation analyses 3.
Disseminate results, defend the choices of model structure and data inputs by means of an interactive oral examination. These will be supported by the use of tutorials 7 x 1 hour to consolidate concepts and skills learned within the lectures.
