UKPDS Outcomes Model Workshop to coincide with the American Diabetes Association 67th Annual Scientific Sessions, Chicago.

Building a new Diabetes Simulation Model using Patient Level Data

21 June 2007, 9am – 5pm
Ida Noyes Hall, University of Chicago
1212 East 59th Street, Chicago, IL 60637

The workshop is intended for users and potential users of the UKPDS Outcomes Model, a simulation model based on patient level data. The purpose of the workshop is to gain feedback from users about the model and to discuss the development of a new diabetes computer simulation model.


  • Overview of the existing UKPDS Outcomes Model.
  • Applications of the UKPDS Outcomes Model.
  • Potential data sources for building and validating a new diabetes simulation model.
  • What do we need in a new diabetes model?
  • How can we adapt diabetes models to developing countries?
  • Effects of self-selection in evaluating treatments for Diabetes.

There will be an opportunity to discuss other issues in diabetes simulation modelling in an open session at the end of the day.
