Estimating the surge in demand for MH resulting from Covid-19: A dynamic modelling approach

21 May 2021 10:00am – 11:30amBST (+01:00)
Virtual (Microsoft Teams)

In this webinar colleagues from MerseyCare and the Strategy Unit will share their modelling approach, key assumptions and demonstrate the freely available interactive and customisable tool.  The modelling is based on a segmented population approach, informed by evidence of COVID-generated demands, populated by a range of aggregated and routine datasets and implemented as a system dynamic simulation. 

The session will include:

  • An overview of the model design, methods, outputs, limitations and demonstration of the web-based tool;
  • The application of outputs to local demand and capacity planning;
  • Overview of proposed changes for an updated version of the model.
