Description

Do you need new ideas for addressing chronic disease in your community? In this one hour webinar, which is part of the Hot Topics series, Diane Orenstein, PhD, Justin Trogdon, PhD, and Kristina Wile, MS, discuss simulation models that can help shape local strategic planning for chronic disease. They share the insights and conclusions from their national chronic disease system dynamics model. They also contrast disease and cost outcomes from the national model with that of a locally oriented version in East Travis County in Austin, Texas.

Air date: April 14, 2009

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the multiple casual pathways for cardiovascular disease prevention in a local context
  • Describe the application of system dynamics to cardiovascular disease
  • Compare and contrast effectiveness of potential intervention options
  • Assess the applicability of strategic conclusions to local conditions

Intended Audience

Local and state public health practitioners; Public health nurses

Presenters

Diane Orenstein, PhD, is a behavior scientist in the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, Centers for Disease Control. The focus of her programmatic and applied research is to conduct economic evaluations that describe the cost burden of chronic diseases, cost effectiveness of interventions, and to develop tools and system models for public health practitioners and other key stakeholders that provide guidance for policies and prevention.

Justin Trogdon, PhD, is a health economist in RTI International’s Public Health Economics Program. His current research agenda includes methods for estimating the cost of disease with applications in obesity, chronic disease, cancer, and tobacco; program evaluation and cost-effectiveness studies; treatment for heart attack, focusing on the role of hospital experience; and the impact of social networks on obesity.

Kristina Wile, MS, has been providing consulting and facilitation for systems thinking and system dynamics for 15 years. For the past few years, she has been orking with the CDC and other partners to develop a model to understand the dynamics of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors in local contexts.
