Bayesian multistate modelling of incomplete chronic disease burden data

  title={Bayesian multistate modelling of incomplete chronic disease burden data},
  author={Christopher Jackson and Bel{\'e}n Zapata-Diomedi and James Woodcock},
A widely-used model for determining the long-term health impacts of public health interventions, often called a “multistate lifetable”, requires estimates of incidence, case fatality, and sometimes also remission rates, for multiple diseases by age and gender. Generally, direct data on both incidence and case fatality are not available in every disease and setting. For example, we may know population mortality and prevalence rather than case fatality and incidence. This paper presents Bayesian…

A generic model for the assessment of disease epidemiology: the computational basis of DisMod II

This work derives a set of equations that describes this disease process and allows calculation of the complete epidemiology of a disease given a minimum of three input variables and outputs are incidence and case fatality, among others.

Age‐Specific Incidence and Prevalence: A Statistical Perspective

In epidemiology incidence denotes the rate of occurrence of new cases (of disease), while prevalence is the frequency in the population (of diseased people). From a statistical point of view it is

PopMod: a longitudinal population model with two interacting disease states

The population model PopMod is designed to simulate the health and mortality experience of an arbitrary population subjected to two interacting disease conditions as well as all other "background" causes of death and disability, to provide a standard measure of effectiveness for intervention and cost-effectiveness analysis.

Assessing the external validity of model-based estimates of the incidence of heart attack in England: a modelling study

By comparison with AMI incidence rates in England, DisMod II did not achieve external validity for age-specific incidence rates, but did provide global estimates of incidence that are of similar magnitude to measured estimates.

Choosing an epidemiological model structure for the economic evaluation of non-communicable disease public health interventions

This review suggests that individual-level models may be better than population- level models for estimating the effects of population heterogeneity and that model structures allowing for interactions between populations, their environment, and time are often better suited to complex multifaceted interventions.

PRIMEtime CE: a multistate life table model for estimating the cost-effectiveness of interventions affecting diet and physical activity

A multistate life table cost-effectiveness model that can directly compare interventions affecting multiple disease outcomes is described, allowing decision makers to understand how they can maximise population health with limited financial resources.

Taking multi-morbidity into account when attributing DALYs to risk factors: comparing dynamic modeling with the GBD2010 calculation method

This paper describes dynamic modeling as an alternative, completely counterfactual approach and compares this to the approach used in the Global Burden of Disease 2010 study, arguing that the GBD2010 approach is a hybrid of an attributional and counterfactUAL approach, making the end result hard to understand, while dynamic modelling uses a purely counterfactually approach and thus yields better interpretable results.

The modelled impact of increases in physical activity: the effect of both increased survival and reduced incidence of disease

A hybrid micro-simulation lifetable model was developed, which made allowance for both changes in longevity and risk of disease incidence, to estimate the effects of increases in physical activity on measures of healthcare need for diseases for which physical activity is protective.

Cardiovascular screening to reduce the burden from cardiovascular disease: microsimulation study to quantify policy options

When primary prevention strategies for reducing cardiovascular disease burden and inequalities are compared, universal screening seems less effective than alternative strategies, which incorporate population-wide approaches.
