Adapting the Coronary Heart Disease Policy Model to Address Disparities in Heart Disease

CVP director, Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo has adapted the Coronary Heart Disease Policy Model (CHDPM) to address disparities in heart disease. The CHDPM is a dynamic computer simulation of disease. This is a useful tool for projecting the population impact of clinical trial results, for comparing the effectiveness of prevention and treatment guidelines, for synthesizing multiple lines of scientific evidence, and for projecting disease trends. Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo has and continues to work with international collaborators to adapt the CHDPM to multiple countries including Chile, Argentina, Mexico, and China.
