It is often an important clinical task to predict how long a given patient will need to be hospitalized, but past research efforts to provide an empirical basis for such predictions have not been highly successful. The authors propose a conceptual model for predicting length of stay that goes beyond previous research; they not only include a range of(More)
Complexity, unpredictability, and constraints, such as the need to deliver in short timeframes (speed), can all contribute significantly to how difficult it is to deliver a task. This is especially true if these factors remain unnoticed and hence unmanaged. To manage difficulty it is therefore essential to identify and if possible measure the difficulty(More)
Delivery complexity is recognized universally as continually increasing; suggesting that Complexity or Difficulty Assessment Tools (CATs/DATs) are even more critical for ensuring that the right delivery approaches are selected. However, these tools appear immature, with significant diversity between the tools. Consequently, which tool to use, or type of(More)
