Event Info
Health Systems Complexity is a cross-disciplinary research field that takes a unique system dynamics view of health, examining all aspects from the molecular level all the way up to healthcare and governance itself. Health Systems Complexity at the NTU in Singapore is aligned with world-wide initiatives to model patients, like the Virtual Physiological Human, and the health systems in which they function. At the NTU one of the aims is to develop scenario-based decision support systems to assess the influence of healthcare and medication measures on the whole health chain, from the biomedical effects to the impact on social and health policy.

The Health Systems Complexity symposium is pleased to have renowned scholars, scientists, educators and leaders from different corners of the world to talk about how the notion of complexity science can help in understanding health in an integrative way. The symposium presents a revolutionary approach to reforming basic practice and large-scale care delivery, based on the concept of health care as a complex, self-organized, and self-interactive system. The goals of this symposium is to bring together original thinkers who do not shy away from unconventional methods to address the tremendous challenges the growing and aging population of our world is facing.

Tea reception and lunch will be provided. Kindly register by 30th June 2013.
