The Peer Models Network
Graphic by Sam Bradd of Drawing Change
The Peer Models Network is an initiative led by Mohsen Sadatsafavi, Amin Adibi, and Stephanie Harvard at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Our team works on intersecting initiatives to help increase model transparency and ensure that models for healthcare decision-making reflect patient and public values. This includes developing the PRISM platform, consulting with stakeholders, exploring methods for patient and public involvement in modelling through projects like LEAP, and creating educational videos about modelling.
Some of our recent co-authored publications on relevant topics include:
