The workshop will provide an introduction to operational research (OR) modelling in healthcare and the type of data required to populate models. Opening material will present OR modelling case studies and highlight the benefits, challenges and limitations of using systematic reviews (SR) and meta-analyses to inform the modelling. This for example will highlight the benefits of using operational research to improve the chances that research is implemented in practice. Workshop participants will be involved in some group work to explore the potential application of OR and SRs in their own work.
