  1. Planning for alcohol-problem prevention through complex systems modeling : Results from SimCom.

    Article - En anglais

    This article describes a computer-based model of alcohol use and misuse intervention called SimCom.

    This generic model, based on the best available scientific knowledge, incorporates eight interaction subsystems.

    When loaded with actual data from a locality, the model has the ability to « act like » this location and can be used to forecast the future effects of alternative prevention strategies.

    The article descibes benchmark testing of a model for the state of California, including projected prevention strategies for that state.
