Abstract

SD and DES have been extensively applied to a range of situations in many
ways, and can provide complementary insights into a system. This research
considers the value of combining these approaches and presents proposals for
their integration within healthcare. Designs for linking and a framework for
undertaking mixed modelling interventions are proposed, providing a toolkit
of interaction options. The impact of applying this framework and designs to
facilitate integration in practice is considered. Models developed with an oncology
unit are discussed and proposed practices are reflected upon.
