This panel session is designed to explore the reasons why healthcare fails to adopt simulation and modeling techniques, and will seek to highlight ways towards greater adoption. The aim of the panel is to have a sustained dialogue with and amongst the audience. The agenda for the discussion will cover care delivery in a variety of contexts, including, the US and UK, hospital based and in more distributed systems and operations and workforce management. It will also address the use of computer games in simulation and modeling, frameworks within which simulation modeling may best be accomplished and the steps needed to overcome barriers in each community needed to see a greater uptake of simulation modeling in healthcare.
