Recommendations for decision and simulation modeling

Project Summary Title and Description

Recommendations for decision and simulation modeling
Purpose: We aimed to update and expand previous syntheses of evidence- and consensus-based guidance on decision and simulation modeling using a systematic review-driven stakeholder-led process.
Authors of Report
Methodology description
Data sources: We searched MEDLINE, the Cochrane Methodology Register, the Health Technology Assessment Database, and the NHS Economic Evaluation Database (through October 30, 2012) Study selection: We selected articles presenting evidence- or consensus-based recommendations for the conduct and dissemination of decision and simulation modeling.
