Modelling to Learn: Participatory System Dynamics for Evidence-based Addiction and Mental Health Care with Dr Lindsey Zimmerman

Lindsey Zimmerman, PhD, is a Clinical and Community Psychologist, and Implementation Scientist at the National Center for PTSD, Dissemination and Training Division of the Veterans Health Administration (VA) in the United States. Dr. Zimmerman is principal investigator of National Institute of Health (NIH) research that enlists participatory system dynamics to increase timely Veteran access to evidence-based pharmacotherapy and evidence-based psychotherapy for depression, PTSD, alcohol and opioid use disorder. These disorders are common, costly, and frequently comorbid conditions, and improving access and continuity is a complex challenge for multidisciplinary, outpatient care teams.

Based on research showing the benefits of participatory system dynamics for patients and providers, VA invested in the development of the quality improvement training program, Modelling to Learn, which will soon be disseminated nationally.  While visiting the University, Dr. Zimmerman will discuss the approach and findings to date in a talk entitled, “Modelling to Learn: Participatory System Dynamics for Evidence-based Addiction and Mental Health Care.
