Modeling Behavior in Complex Public Health Systems: by Christopher Keane MPH ScD

By Christopher Keane MPH ScD

This graduate textual content is the 1st to give tools for modeling future health habit dynamics, utilizing a variety of on-line interactive simulations, downloadable courses, and examples of purposes to making plans interventions. The ebook examines behaviors that diversity from uncomplicated person well-being protecting activities to advanced cooperative public well-being activities. It presents a uncomplicated and powerful strategy for instructing platforms considering, a center competency now required via the organization of colleges of Public Health.

The textual content provides evolutionary and ecological types of health and wellbeing habit, which readers first discover utilizing interactive on-line simulations. the elemental rules of those types are defined during the book's narrative and verified by utilizing basic board video games. The textual content then exhibits the best way to translate those board video games into computational versions utilizing Netlogo, a loose, common software program. therefore no machine programming historical past is needed. Readers will study the fundamentals of agent-based modeling of person habit, social community habit, organizational habit, unfold of illness, and numerous public overall healthiness interventions. making use of those the right way to public health and wellbeing platforms, pattern versions introduce the dynamics of networks of firms and the way they could engage to guard wellbeing and fitness. A unifying topic all through is how advanced person and collective overall healthiness habit advance from uncomplicated person healthiness judgements or habit repeated over the years. The publication additionally encompasses a student's types at successive phases of studying, together with her early-stage fallacious software, which readers can themselves try and right. scholars will discover ways to create their very own versions, use them to behavior simulated experiments, and observe those the right way to making plans and comparing habit switch interventions. each one bankruptcy presents on-line interactive types and downloadable pattern programs.

Key Features:

  • Uses interactive simulation for modeling wellbeing and fitness habit dynamics for complicated public wellbeing and fitness systems
  • Demonstrates agent-based modeling of person overall healthiness habit, community habit, public well-being intervention results, and the unfold of disease
  • Teaches readers to create types which can increase their neighborhood wishes checks, application good judgment modeling, and application making plans and evaluation
  • Includes various interactive on-line simulations, downloadable courses, and examples of purposes to making plans interventions
  • Facilitates "systems thinking," a required center competency
