Complexity in Health

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow
Department Name: UNLISTED

Abstract

We know that population health and health inequalities are a product of the complex interplay of many different factors, including social, behavioural, economic, political and environmental determinants of health. These factors come together in complex adaptive systems that are often resistant to change. This makes it very difficult to find out how we can improve health, or to understand or predict the impact on health of different policies or interventions.
We aim to provide leadership in the development of new research methods to evaluate programmes that aim to improve health and reduce inequalities in health. This work is important since decision makers need to understand where to target effort and investment. It is imperative that we can identify what works, for whom, under what circumstances and why. We will further develop and apply methods to help researchers, decision makers and the public share their knowledge to gain richer understandings of how multiple factors come together to influence heath and inequalities. We will use simulation and evaluation methods to identify solutions that contribute to improve health and reduce inequalities. Our work will focus on mental health, healthy ageing, adolescent health, social care and healthy schools.

Technical Summary

The complexity in health programme aims to improve the design and conduct of population health improvement research, through development and translation of methods and their implementation in studies. An increasing focus will be to prioritise complex adaptive systems approaches to intervention and evaluation: “Instead of asking whether an intervention works to fix a problem, researchers should aim to identify if and how it contributes to reshaping a system in favourable ways.” A major ambition is to develop methods and approaches which facilitate partnership at all stages of complex intervention research between interdisciplinary researchers and key stakeholders in real-world settings – policymakers, practitioners, and the public.
The aims of our planned programme of work focus on key areas where progress is required:
(i) to develop better methods to co-produce intervention programme theory and use this to identify key uncertainties, guide the choice of evaluation perspective and the prioritisation of research questions and identify the appropriate research design;
(ii) to develop and translate methods and processes that support the involvement of stakeholders in all stages of development, evaluation and implementation;
(iii) to develop and normalise a wider range of approaches to evaluation, including complex systems approaches and other methods more suited to the evaluation of meso-, macro- and multi-level interventions;
(iv) to improve the efficiency of research and its relevance and translation into policy and practice.
To achieve these aims, we will organise our work in four workstreams. The methods workstream will develop and translate methods to improve the design, conduct and utility to decision-makers of public health improvement research, with a significant focus on co-production of programme theory to inform intervention and evaluation design. It will include methods development to improve the application of agent-based models (ABMs) in population health. The modelling workstream will apply ABMs to a range of public health issues including social care, welfare reform and place-based health. The interventions workstream will work with colleagues and multi-sectoral collaborators to identify and/or develop novel interventions and evaluate them and their implementation in real world settings, particularly focussing on adolescent health and healthy ageing. The educational settings workstream will focus on school based interventions with an emphasis on adolescent mental health.

Title Illustrated comic - 'Enlighten your clock: How your body tells time' (Judith Brown) 
Description The SCRAMS project created a comic, 'Enlighten your clock: How your body tells time', to coincide with the UNESCO International Day of Light on Sunday 16th May 2021. The comic was written and illustrated by Coline Weinzaepflen, Masters student at the University of Strasbourg, and edited by Dr Manuel Spitschan at the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford. The comic provides a light-hearted, funny and scientifically grounded introduction to the science of sleep, suitable from the age of 13 years. The reader learns about the body clock, the brain basis of sleep, sleep conditions such as insomnia and narcolepsy, and how to improve sleep. The complex science on these subjects is illuminated through beautiful drawings and a charming narrative which bring the concepts to life. The main protagonist is a cat - a pet species notable for seemingly sleepy behaviour - guiding the human character. As the biological clock underlies many aspects of our physiology and behaviour, the book addresses a key need to explain how the environment impacts on our brain and our body.

Policy Influence Type Participation in a guidance/advisory committee
Impact Jo Inchley was invited to attend 2 workshops organised by Public Health Scotland on 12th and 28th October as part of an expert consultation to inform development of a new set of mental health indicators for children and young people in Scotland. This was an update to the previous set published in 2011. The indicator set is used to monitor the state of mental health and the risk and protective factors for mental health of children and young people (aged from pre-birth to 17 years, at a national and local level) and inequalities in these. They help inform decision-making about priorities for action and resource allocation and are used to 1. create national and local reports on population mental health, 2. inform strategy, interventions and strategic planning, 3. identify contributions to mental health improvement, 4. create wider awareness of the determinants of wellbeing, 5. strengthen the link between the determinants of mental health and interventions, and 6. inform the development of other indicators for impact assessment.

Title Course in Developing and Evaluating Social and Public Health Interventions (Daniel Wight) 
Description A small team from Glasgow University, Danny Wight, Cindy Gray, Andy Baxter and Jo Halliday, delivered a nine day workshop in Moshi, Tanzania, to strengthen East African capacity to develop and evaluate complex interventions. The workshop presented, reviewed and adapted the GU Master's module 'Improving Health and Society' and trained the ten experienced researchers from Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya to further deliver it in their own contexts. The module trains researchers and intervention developers in the Six Steps for Quality Intervention Development (6SQuID) model, an evidence-based approach to the process of developing programmes to improve health and society, and the key principles of evaluation. Participants of the workshop are planning to build this into courses for postgraduate students, research staff, and government and NGO researchers and programmers to promote better development, evaluation and scale-up of effective projects and policies. Additionally, this first trial of the workshop will result in reproducible materials to run similar training sessions for other academics to further develop courses in new international contexts.

Title Agent-based model of lone parents (Eric Silverman) 
Description This model is the first released version of our agent-based simulation of the challenges faced by lone parents under the welfare-to-work system. We have made significant extensions to previous work on simulating child care demand, by simulating in detail the work schedules and hour-by-hour time demands of each individual agent. In this way we can capture detailed effects of welfare-to-work requirements, limited free child care hours, and work demands on agents attempting to provide child care in their household. This first release provides the simulation framework; subsequent updates will allow the user to examine different policy scenarios, and will incorporate code optimisations to reduce the computational demands of the agent scheduling system. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2022 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation represents a significant advance on previous work, in that it simulates the time demands placed on carers in sufficient detail that we can examine the impact of shift work, night work, and the complications introduced by the limited availability of formal child care during the day. This work is being shared with policy makers and will be refined based on their input. A publication will be prepared once the policy scenarios have been designed, run and analysed in depth; the simulation itself is already publicly available, and will be continually updated and refined as the work progresses.

Title Agent-based model of social and child care provision (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based model simulates the interaction between social care and child care supply and demand in the UK population. Previous work has demonstrated the complexities of informal social care provision, and illustrated how socioeconomic status influences the capability of individuals to provide care for loved ones. This model goes further by adding a detailed child care provision process to the model, which presents a more realistic picture of the demands placed on working families when members of the household require care. The differences between adult social care and child care are fully represented here; agents are required by law to look after their children, meaning unmet child care need supersedes adult social care need in the household, and child care can be provided on a many-to-one basis (one parent caring for multiple children at once), unlike adult care. This simulation forms the basis for our core-funded work on the impact of welfare-to-work programmes on lone parents, providing the core child-care provision module needed for that work. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The simulation has been published by PLOS One, and the code made freely available on GitHub. This model is the first ABM to simulate the competing demands of adult social care and child care, and we are using the simulation as a foundation for future simulation work on welfare programmes and the development of policies to support informal care. We intend to further optimise this model and improve the interface, allowing it to be used by a wider community of public health researchers and policy-makers.

Title Agent-based model of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on social care (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based simulation was designed to model the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on social care in the UK. The model builds upon our previous simulation of social care, adding a detailed behavioural model of heterogeneous individual responses to the pandemic and related public health restrictions. Simulated agents react to two types of perceived risk: the risk of being infected themselves; and the risk of infecting others. In response to these risks, agents may choose to limit their interactions with others, including those to whom they are providing social care. The model also includes multiple exposure settings in which agents may contract the virus, including a specific setting modelling the spread of the virus during social care interactions. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2021 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation marks a significant advancement in methodology, in that it combines a sophisticated and detailed model of formal and informal social care with an innovative model of behavioural responses to the pandemic. The model also simulates the unequal impact of the pandemic, as agents in lower socioeconomic status groups have more difficulty self-isolating and are more likely to get infected. The model has been submitted to Scientific Reports, and we have already received enquiries about collaboration from researchers at the University of Texas.

Title CareSim - Agent-Based Simulation of Formal and Informal Child and Social Care (Umberto Gostoli) 
Description CareSim is a demographic and socio-economic model developed with the purpose to simulate the process through which informal child and social care are allocated, The main assumption is that these processes tale place in kinship networks, which are networks connecting the receiving households with the households of people with which the receving household's members have a kin relationship. In these networks, the transmission of both informal and formal care takes place, as for some household may be more convenient to allocate income to child and social care provision rather than members' time. As the informal and formal child and social care provided by households is affected by the child and social care policies, the model includes parameters which represent the policy levers related to these policies. This feature, allows the researcher not only to better forecast the future evolution of child and social care needs, but also to simulate the effects of alternative policies. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2019 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact CareSim is a model allowing policy makers to forecast the evolution of child and social care needs and the way the society will respond to these needs, under the current policy scenario. Moreover, it will allow polciy makers to simulate the effects of alternative social policies designed with the goal to tackle future challenges related to child and social care, as projected by the model. Therefore, the model gives policy makers the opportunity to make policy decisions informed by the demographic and social knowledge underlying the model's structure.

Title Covid-19: Agent-based model of pandemic progression and effectiveness of mitigation strategies (Stefano Picascia) 
Description Covid-19: Agent-based model of pandemic progression and effectiveness of mitigation strategies. A multi-layer network agent-based model of the progression of the COVID19 infection and its mitigations: lockdowns, social distancing, contact tracing, massive testing. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact he model is designed to test and appreciate the difference in infections and casualties with and without social distancing/lockdown measures and, more importantly, to test the effectiveness of infection mitigation strategies such as large scale testing and contact tracing apps. Specifically, the complex interaction between the availability of testing and different levels of app adoption can be usefully explored with this model. The model also shows that, when we assume that the viral transmission runs predominantly through one's social network, the dynamic of the infection is different from that emerging under the assumption of most SEIR models of an equal probability of everyone infecting everyone else.

Title Model of individual behavioural responses to the Covid-19 pandemic (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based model develops a novel behavioural model of individual responses to the Covid-19 pandemic and the risks of being infected, or infecting others. The simulation incorporates an SEIR model of pandemic spread alongside the behavioural model, allowing us to simulate the feedback process wherein agent behaviour is influenced by the pandemic, which in turn influences the course of the pandemic itself. This behavioural model has now been incorporated into our other simulation work on social care, and can be extended to other simulation frameworks as well. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2021 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation model represents a step forward in the simulation of pandemic outcomes, in that it directly simulates the impact of individual behaviour on the course of the pandemic. In most pandemic simulations, agents are represented simply as vectors for disease transmission, with their behaviour being modified by restrictions but not by their own perception of personal risk. Our model fundamentally changes this picture, by allowing agents to have heterogeneous risk tolerances, which provides a more accurate picture of the challenges facing policy-makers, given that compliance with restrictions is unlikely to be universal. Since our publication of the model in ABMHub 2021, we have been invited to submit an extension of the paper to the Artificial Life journal, and received enquiries from a US-based simulation group that is also working on behavioural modelling of the pandemic.

Title Neural networks for cellular automata classification (Eric Silverman) 
Description This is a first effort at training a neural network, specifically a convolutional neural network, to recognise complex behaviour in cellular automata (CAs). CAs are simple systems that nonetheless display highly complex behaviours, and this network learns to classify CAs by their level of complexity. This early-stage theoretical work is intended as a first step toward an automated system for recognising and categorising emergent/complex behaviour in computer simulation outputs, which will assist in the analysis and understanding of complex models. This initial effort is available as a GitHub repository and is written using Mathematica code. Results were published as an extended abstract for the ALIFE 2019 conference, and will appear in the conference proceedings from MIT Press after the conference.

PI Contribution SHINE is collaborating with Generation Scotland at The University of Edinburgh (https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland) on their recently launched TeenCovidLife survey (22nd May 2020) for 12 to 17 years olds to see how Covid-19 is affecting their health and wellbeing, social and home life. Questions from the Health Behaviour and School-Aged Children survey as well as the forthcoming SHINE On-line Pupil Mental Health survey have been incorporated into the TeenCovidLife survey and the survey distributed to secondary schools in the SHINE network. SHINE schools will have the opportunity to gather base-line mental health data to compare with any data collected later via the SHINE pupil on-line pupil mental health survey. Participating SHINE schools will receive a report with the national findings of the survey in July, as well a school-level data report in August (survey numbers permitting) to assist with planning for the transition back to school. This survey will build on SHINE's ongoing data-driven, systems-level approach to mental health improvement in schools.
Collaborator Contribution Generation Scotland (https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland) have launched a survey (CovidLife) to understand the psychological, social and economic impacts of COVID-19. There will be a follow up survey as the lockdown continues and again after the government measures are lifted to see how different Generation Scotland volunteers and household cope over time. Generation Scotland requested SHINE to help develop their TeenCovidLife survey for 12 to 17 years olds and work with the SHINE network of secondary schools. Following the first survey (Over 5,000 respondents), over 2,000 TeenCovidLife volunteers took part in the second survey in autumn 2020, to have their say on how the COVID-19 pandemic affected their lives and what it meant to them. The survey included questions about vaccines, exams, wellbeing and COVID-19 measures. The reports were made available in February 2021.
Impact TeenCovid Life national reports are available at https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland/what-have-we-found/latest-news/teencovidlife2-results https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland/what-have-we-found/latest-news/teencovidlife-one 36 school-level reports were distributed to SHINE schools and 18 local authority-level reports to SHINE partner local authorities.

Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Dr Eric Silverman, Dr Stefano Picascia and Dr Umberto Gostoli have developed a collaborative research initiative with Prof David L Robertson of the Centre for Virus Research, University of Glasgow. We are developing a simulation model combining an agent-based simulation of SARS-CoV-2 spread with a linked evolutionary model of viral evolution. This simulation will allow us to investigate the potential dangers of future variants of SARS-CoV-2, and how those variants will be affected by changes in public health policy and vaccine distribution, which may change the selection pressures imposed upon the virus.
Collaborator Contribution Prof Robertson has contributed by evaluating the early results of our initial model, providing details of the possible mutations of SARS-CoV-2 and how they affect the properties of the virus, and directing us toward relevant research in viral genomics and evolutionary biology.
Impact Early-stage outputs include a simulation model of SARS-CoV-2 spread incorporating competing variants and vaccines with waning immunity.

PI Contribution Dr Umberto Gostoli and myself, following my seminar at St Andrews House for the Health and Social Care Analysis, were contacted by members of Scottish Government with an interest in producing policy advice relating to social care provision. Subsequently over the course of two in-person meetings we have a agreed a plan of action to begin producing an updated version of our social care simulation model to examine the possible outcomes of proposed changes to social care policy in Scotland. Our contribution will be additional modifications to our simulation model, further parameterising the simulation using empirical data, and producing and analysing results from the simulations.
Collaborator Contribution Our partners in Scottish Government will provide empirical data for use in our simulation, where possible, and will arrange meetings between our team and relevant user groups, practitioners and policy-makers. They may be able to provide material support for the research when the additional work required is outside the scope of our normal modelling work.
Impact Near-term outputs expected include a modified version of the simulation, which will be shared publicly via GitHub, and papers documenting the results of these first modifications.

Title CLOCK OFF intervention (AnneMartin) 
Description CLOCK OFF - Intervention development - A peer influence approach to reduce night-time use of interactive electronic devices (IED) and social media among adolescents This study aims to develop and refine a peer-led school-based programme which aims to reduce night-time IED and social media use among adolescents (12-13 years). We will conduct a series of interactive online workshops with schools, parents and young people to develop an intervention consisting of three parts: (1) a peer-led approach which involves students identifying influential members of their year group to be trained as peer supporters. Peer supporters will be trained to share messages about the impacts of night-time IED and social media use among students in their year; (2) Sleep Scotland's programme (Sound Sleep) which includes teaching materials on the importance of sleep, training for older pupils to act as Sleep Mentors who promote the importance of sleep and act as sources of advice, and a parent/carer information pack detailing how they can support improved sleep; (3) Sleepy Teens program which include a social media at night-time survey for young people to complete and results will be provided to schools to include in their lesson plan, teaching slides for teachers to use, and a parent intervention. We have worked with schools and young people to develop systems maps and consider the feasibility of the different elements above. The outcomes of this study are threefold: (1) insight into how young people understand the links between night-time use of social media & IED and sleep and mental health, (2) a co-produced programme theory and (3) developed intervention combining the peer-led approach, Sleep Scotland's Sound Sleep program and Sleepy Teens program. This will inform the next stage of the complex intervention framework, namely feasibility testing of the developed intervention.

Attendees of the conference were adults and young people from public, private and third sector organisations. The purpose of the stand was to inform the audience about the purpose of the network and tell them about opportunities for involvement. In order to drive engagement, we also conducted a public engagement activity where people were asked to write down their mental health messages on a speech bubble whiteboard which we then captured with a Polaroid camera. From this, the network gained approximately 10 new members.

Results and Impact Dr Umberto Gostoli and Dr Eric Silverman were asked to participate in a formal debate at the Social Simulation Week event run by the European Social Simulation Association. This event posed the question whether agent-based modelling is a suitable method for producing point predictions of the future state of human social systems. We were asked to contribute a short position statement and to deliver a five-minute presentation arguing for or against the position.

Approximately 90 participants joined the virtual debate via Zoom for the duration. Participants were mostly academics and postgraduate students, with some coming from the world of policy-making as well. The debate was recorded and will be shared subsequently on YouTube. At the end of the debate a poll indicated that some 14% of viewers changed their opinion on the prediction issue due to the debate, which is a larger fraction than the organisers had anticipated.

Results and Impact The Schools Health and Wellbeing Improvement Research Network (SHINE) led session two (Data and trends in young people's mental health and wellbeing) of Policy Hub Scotland's Mental Health in Schools Conference, on Thursday 14th November 2019 at the EICC in Edinburgh. Dr Jo Inchley began the session with a presentation on key recent findings from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children 2018 survey, providing both the Scottish and international context. The audience of mostly teachers, third sector mental health workers and stakeholders from the Local Authorities were very interested to hear about health and wellbeing (HWB) trends in body image, bullying, the important of a trusted adult and multiple health complaints in young people.

Dawn Haughton, SHINE Network Manager, outlined the development of the network, which now includes 106 schools across Scotland. Dawn also described how the network aims to support schools in addressing their HWB needs, with a focus on mental health, by using a data-driven, systems-level approach to health improvement. Dawn further described the on-going SHINE case studies research in five local authorities which is evaluating schools' experiences of being members of SHINE and the uptake and impact of the HWB data reports which were issued to schools in April 2019.

The SHINE team was delighted to introduce representatives from two SHINE schools to give the delegates a first hand report of how the SHINE data was being used in their schools. Andy Dingwall, the Depute Head Teacher from Blairgowrie High School in Perthshire explained how the evidence from the data had been used to target priorities in mental health and wellbeing interventions and PSE delivery, as well as informing decisions regarding the school improvement plan. Fiona Donnelly, the Headteacher at Sandwood Primary School in Glasgow talked about how the overview of current research, provided at the start of each topic area in the report, had supported her understanding of the links between the various factors impacting on children's wellbeing and facilitated the planning for future interventions. Both teachers spoke about the importance of sharing the report within the school community and were very positive about the impact of the SHINE reports.

The conference was a highly successful event with many schools now stating their intention to join the SHINE Network after hearing from the team and the two SHINE schools and being able to collect more information, SHINE briefing papers at the exhibition stand. The imminent launch of the SHINE Pupil mental health and wellbeing survey was of particular interest to schools, in addition to the SHINE webinar on 'Sleep and Mental Health' which will be delivered by Professor Daniel Smith for member schools only on Wednesday 20th November.

The conference also featured a session on Public Petitions Committee's inquiry into mental health support for young people in Scotland with five MSPs attending the conference. The afternoon Ideas Hub session featured a number of short 'pitches' by presenters showcasing approaches, resources or lesson plans around children and young people's mental health that have been delivered in schools across Scotland.

Results and Impact PHASE have developed an online resource that serves as a self-learner's curriculum to provide a broad direction to guide independent learning and study for those wanting to find out more about using agent-based models (ABMs) in population health. The curriculum provides information on existing resources, organisations, sources of knowledge, and people within PHASE and the wider simulation community that can help users to use ABMs for health improvement.

The curriculum is structured to suit a range of audiences:
- People who want to learn about health improvement modelling
- People who want to learn how to become "modellers" and build agent-based simulation models themselves
- People who want to become "model users" and work with modellers to make decisions on how the models are used in public health practice, even if they don't learn to build models themselves
