Join us: Lunch & Learn Event - Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Learn how BC healthcare decisions are increasingly informed by research - including 'computer models.'

WHAT: To make decisions, healthcare policymakers often rely on information from health researchers. With the use of scientific computer modelling, researchers can provide important information about the expected effects of health interventions.

Join us via ZOOM for a 60-minute spotlight and discussion with Dr. Stephanie Harvard and Amin Adibi who will explain how models work and why patients and the public have an important role to play. As part of their presentation they will present two short animated videos about COPD-related computer models.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 12:00 to 1:00pm PST 

WHY: In healthcare, decisions affect patients and the public. In the doctor’s office, patients may have to decide whether to take a new medication. In the provincial government, policy-makers may have to decide whether to make a new medication available in the publicly-funded health system. How can we make more informed healthcare decisions? Dr. Harvard and her team need your input.  (Great background article here:
