Eliciting expert opinion on climate change impacts on health - Boulder Symposium

Hosted by Colorado State University's Infectious Disease Supercluster, this two-day symposium will be held June 2–3 at the Hotel Boulderado, in downtown Boulder, to explore the expert elicitation process in decision making. Decision makers turn to expert opinion when data are incomplete, unreliable, or unattainable. Expert elicitation is a structured approach to gathering expert opinion. Several methods for expert elicitation are used in research and decision making. Expert elicitation is especially relevant for addressing impacts of climate change on health because it can improve decision making in the face of high uncertainty and inform risk modeling when data are inadequate or unreliable.  The symposium is designed to have an interactive format that will engage participants from different disciplines.Researchers, policymakers neededWe are looking for researchers, senior policymakers, and other professionals who are interested in discussing the limitations and contributions of expert elicitation in infectious disease research and decision making.Participation is limited to 20 people.
