A Novel Mechanism to Support Transformative Model Interrogation in Patient-Oriented Health Economics: the Peer Models Network



Open to Provincial Region


In today’s data-driven world, scientific models are routinely used to inform healthcare decision-making. To respond to the legitimate public demand for model transparency, we have launched an initiative called the Peer Models Network, with support from the BC Academic Health Science Network and affiliated BC SUPPORT Unit.

The Peer Models Network website invites visitors to view scientific models directly, along with educational videos and other resources to help explain how they work. All visitors are encouraged to give feedback on models and on educational resources, either privately via a web query form or publicly in an online discussion forum.

Currently, the Peer Models Network is running a survey for project evaluation purposes (Principal Investigator Dr. Mohsen Sadatsafavi, UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences). We would like to know what aspects of the website users like and don’t like, as well as their thoughts on the rationale for the project. Participants are offered a $15 honorarium for completing the survey, which will be emailed to them as a gift card.

Complete the survey here.

If you have any feedback or questions about the Peer Models Network, please feel free to visit, or to contact Dr. Stephanie Harvard at or Dr. Mohsen Sadatsafavi at

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
