Competition Between Injunctive Social Norms And Conservation Priorities Gives Rise To Complex Dynamics In A Model Of Forest Growth And Opinion Dynamics
Human and environmental systems are often treated as existing in isolation from one another, whereas in fact they are often two parts of a single, coupled human-environment system. Developing theoretical models of coupled ...
Parameterizing a dynamic inﬂuenza model using longitudinal versus age-stratiﬁed case notiﬁcations yields diﬀerent predictions of vaccine impacts
Dynamic transmission models of inﬂuenza are often used in decision-making to identify which vaccination strategies might best reduce inﬂuenza-associated health and economic burdens. Our goal was to use laboratory conﬁrmed ...
Could The Human Papillomavirus Vaccines Drive Virulence Evolution?
(Royal Society, The, 2015-01-07)
The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines hold great promise for preventing several cancers caused by HPV infections. Yet little attention has been given to whether HPV could respond evolutionarily to the new selection ...
The Influence Of Social Norms On The Dynamics Of Vaccinating Behaviour For Paediatric Infectious Diseases
(Royal Society, The, 2014-04-07)
Mathematical models that couple disease dynamics and vaccinating behaviour often assume that the incentive to vaccinate disappears if disease prevalence is zero. Hence, they predict that vaccine refusal should be the rule, ...
The Impacts Of Simultaneous Disease Intervention Decisions On Epidemic Outcomes
Mathematical models of the interplay between disease dynamics and human behavioural dynamics can improve our understanding of how diseases spread when individuals adapt their behaviour in response to an epidemic. Accounting ...
Strategic Decision-making about Travel during Disease Outbreaks: a Game Theoretical Approach
(The Royal Society, 2018-08-20)
Visitors can play an important role in the spread of infections. Here, we incorporate an epidemic model into a game theoretical framework to investigate the eﬀects of travel strategies on infection control. Potential ...
The influence of social behaviour on competition between virulent pathogen strains
Infectious disease interventions like contact precautions and vaccination have proven effective in disease control and elimination. The priority given to interventions can depend strongly on how virulent the pathogen is, ...
Cost-Effectiveness Evaluation Of Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccines For Seasonal Influenza Prevention: A Dynamic Modeling Study Of Canada And The United Kingdom
(BioMed Central, 2015-10-27)
Background: The adoption of quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIV) to replace trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) in immunization programs is growing worldwide, thus helping to address the problem of influenza B lineage mismatch. ...
Disease Interventions Can Interfere With One Another Through Disease-Behaviour Interactions
(Public Library of Science, 2015-06-01)
Theoretical models of disease dynamics on networks can aid our understanding of how infectious diseases spread through a population. Models that incorporate decision-making mechanisms can furthermore capture how behaviour-driven ...
