Using DICE for modelling cost-effectiveness

We have previously given you news about NICE TSD 15 Patient-level simulation, but we didn’t tell you about an extension to it that looked at the replicability of simulations using the Discretely Integrated Condition Event (DICE) tool.  Well…that work has now been published in Pharmacoeconomics (reference below) and all the models and code used in that have been added to the TSD website here.
