Event description

Description

In this seminar, we will illustrate four prototypical examples of applied research with Bayesian networks related to health economics and public policy.

  • Diagnostic decision support: using Bayesian networks for cost-effective evidence-seeking.
  • The value of a priori information in field triage: defining asymmetrical, dynamic trauma activation thresholds for the optimal utilization of hospital resources.
  • Developing universal policies under extreme uncertainty, e.g., in the absence of epidemiological data: "test & treat" vs. presumptive malaria treatment in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Causal inference from observational healthcare data: using the Disjunctive Cause Criterion to reduce—not eliminate—the need for causal assumptions from domain experts.

Each case study will include a theoretical presentation and a practical demonstration using the BayesiaLab software platform.

A detailed seminar abstract is forthcoming.
