System Dynamics Example http://www.dpsnet.com/system/example.htm The essence of systems thinking is that structure influences behaviour or, put another way, when placed in the same system, different people tend to produce similar results. The reason for this is that there are a number of ‘rules’ which seem to be true of all complex systems

Opinion | USA Today Editorial, Op-Ed Examine Issue of Medical Errors - Kaisernetwork.or http://www.kaisernetwork.org/daily_reports/rep_index.cfm?DR_ID=25137 A USA Today editorial and opinion piece on Thursday examined systems that hospitals could implement to help prevent medical errors in response to a recent HealthGrades study that found an average of 195,000 U.S. hospital patients die each year from preventable errors (Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report, 7/27). Summaries of the editorial and opinion piece appear below.USA Today: A 1999 Institute of Medicine report recommended a 'two-tiered approach, part voluntary, part mandatory,' to address preventable medical errors in hospitals, and that is 'still the most sensible compromise' and 'a sure way' to measure and address the problem, a USA Today editorial states. According to USA Today, Congress this year likely will approve legislation to ad

Monte Carlo Simulation of Complex Radiotherapy Treatments http://csdl2.computer.org/dl/mags/cs/2004/04/c4060.htm Monte Carlo simulation is an accurate way of assessing radiotherapy dose distribution in nonhomogeneous volumes, but it requires long processing times. A new distribution model simulates radiotherapy treatments and runs on a PC network, which reduces the processing time and makes for a powerful treatment-verification tool.
