The University of Plymouth is delighted to host this event on the role of System Dynamics in healthcare planning. 

Talks will be given by two guest speakers and everyone is welcome - please contact Jonathan Moizer ( if you intend to attend. 

The event is being organised by the UK Chapter of the System Dynamics Society, whose current President is Plymouth academic Dr Jonathan Moizer. Jonathan is also the Lead for the iSPER Modelling and Simulation for Social Systems Research Initiative (M&S3) which works to research the application of gaming and modelling to address important social issues.

The role of System Dynamics in modelling for health and social care 

Speaker: Martin Pitt, Associate Professor of Healthcare Modelling and Simulation, Director of PenCHORD (Peninsula Collaboration for Health Operational Research & Development) NIHR CLAHRC South West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC)

Martin will outline how SD both has and can be used to model health and social care as a general introduction to its application and potential in this field. The presentation will focus on how the insights from SD modelling can be usefully applied to improving service delivery and how SD sits in relation to other modelling approaches such as discrete event simulation and mathematical methods.

System Dynamics applied to mental healthcare planning

Speaker: Tim Hobbs, PhD; Director Dartington Service Design Lab

This talk will outline a case study example of the use of SD to map and plan the development of mental health services in the SW of the UK. Drawing lessons from a recently commissioned project, it will discuss the benefits and limitations of using this approach based on direct experience.
