Stream Definition

Due to changing demographic trends, increased customer expectation and reactive government policies, Health and Social Care systems are facing major challenges worldwide. Providers are experiencing enormous pressure from the public and governments alike to improve provision of healthcare and wellbeing. Over the years, extensive research has been conducted to find immediate and long-term solutions to issues that are routinely faced by health and social care professionals. Operations Research methods have proven to be increasingly valuable in providing useful information to aid planning and management.

The health and social care stream (OR56) welcomes presentations on the development and application of OR methods to health and social care. We are particularly interested in studies that developed and applied practical methods for assisting with real life problems faced by health and/or social care professionals and managers. We are also seeking presentations (possibly by health and social care practitioners) on challenging problems that could be tackled using operational research methods

Bio

Navonil Mustafee 

Navonil Mustafee PhD, MSc, BA is Lecturer in Supply Chain Management at the University of Exeter Business School. His background is in Distributed Systems and Simulation and he has used Desktop Grid Computing and the High Level Architecture for Distributed Simulation to execute large and complex simulations in application domains such as healthcare and banking. Nav publishes in both Computing and Operations Research journals, including, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, SIMULATION: Transactions of the Society of Modelling and Simulation International, the Journal of the Operational Research Society and ACM Transactions on Modelling and Computer Simulation. Nav was the joint program coordinator and keynote editor for OR55; He is the program chair for the 2014 Spring Simulation Multi-conference (Tampa, FL) and the Vice-General Chair for SpringSim 2015 (Alexandria, VA). He is an associate editor for Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modeling & Simulation International and the Journal of Simulation.

John Powell  

John Powell, presently Head of Management Studies and Professor of Strategy at Exeter University Business School, has previously held board level appointments in the defence industry and., since joining academia, has been head of a business school in South Africa.
His research interests are centred on the behaviour of knowledge in systems, particularly those of a strategic nature, including critical and safety systems, crisis and disaster management and, latterly, health systems. He works closely with Dr Nav Mustafee on the application of semi-formal methods and system description  to this class of human activity systems.
He holds a PhD from Cranfield University and is a holder of the President’s Medal of the OR Society.
