TB MAC Introduction to TB modelling post-graduate course - Liverpool, UK - 26th October 2016
This post graduate course is for individuals interested in modelling tuberculosis and the impact of TB care and control programmes
The key learning objectives include: introducing the participants to the basic structures, assumptions, principles, and concepts of TB modelling, including key aspects of Mtb natural history and the impact and cost-effectiveness of TB care and control programmes.
Participants will also gain hands-on experience of using a TB model and how to critically appraise TB modelling papers.
We end by highlighting the role of modelling for policy and decision making & resources available from the TB Modelling and Analysis Consortium (www.tb-mac.org) and other organisations, for students who are interested in taking their modelling interests further.
The key output of this workshop is a better trained cadre of individuals, who are more able to apply knowledge of the pros and cons of modelling in their current and future roles in TB prevention and care.
