Abstract: It is often stated that health simulation is quite different and even that it is more difficult. But, is simulation in health really different to simulation in other sectors? In this paper we explore this question through a survey of simulation modellers and academics. We elicit their opinions across a range of factors concerning the difficulties of health modelling against modelling in other domains. The results seem to corroborate the view that health simulation is different and that it is more difficult. However, further investigation into the backgrounds of those responding and the development of objective measures for the factors surveyed may show quite a different picture.
