Development And Validation Of A Health Policy Simulation Model For Cardiovascular Disease

Grant number: 1084347 | Funding period: 2015 - 2018



The research is focused on evaluating policies associated with treating cardiovascular disease in Australia (CVD). It will involve the development of a computer simulation model for CVD which can be used to assess the cost-effectiveness of wide range of health care treatments. As prices of cardiovascular therapies after the expiry of patents, how much more widely should cardiovascular medication be prescribed? This is the type of question that can be answered through a CVD simulation model.
