Decision making in dynamically complex cases
The process of reconciling potentially harmful drug-drug and drug-disease interactions (DDIs) with a therapeutic strategy that is carefully tailored to the specific needs of a multimorbid patient can be challenging. Both in planning and implementing a strategy, a large number of actions (i.e. diagnostic tests and interventions) may need to be performed in series and parallel in order to reach multiple treatment goals. Earlier actions may influence the options and choices for later actions (or planned actions may influence the choice of earlier actions), and the planned therapeutic strategy may need to evolve over time to counter the individual and cumulative effects of DDIs. This project focuses on developing and testing tools with which to assess and model the dynamic flow of decision making while physicians manage clinically complex cases.
