Complex intervention modelling should capture the dynamics of adaptation

James Greenwood-Lee, Penelope Hawe, Alberto Nettel-Aguirre, Alan Shiell, Deborah A. Marshall
2016 BMC Medical Research Methodology  
Mathematical approaches such as those found in economics in evolutionary game theory and mechanism design can inform the design and evaluation of health interventions.  ...  However, the tendency is for models of interventions to limit focus on the ecology of the system -the 'real-time' operation of the system and impacts of the intervention.  ...  As such, a broader approach is needed to design, evaluate and implement complex interventions.  ...
