|9:45||SESSION 1: ENGAGING COMPLEX SYSTEMS THROUGH ENGINEERING CONCEPTS
How do the various engineering disciplines (e.g., systems engineering, industrial engineering, operations research, human factors engineering, financial engineering, risk analysis) engage system complexity, and how might this perspective inform and improve health care? What can we learn from the contrasts?
