In this study, a system dynamic simulation model for a part of the patient pathway of cutaneous malignant melanoma was developed. A model was built that produced quantified out-put of diagnosed patients staged by severity, using System dynamic simulation. Data from the Swedish Melanoma Registry were combined with current scientific results and used in this analytical tool. Solutions to how these results are adapted into a simulation are described. The simulation model has the ability to generate alternative quantitative output of patient health in a population corresponding to realistic interventions in health care programmes as well as population and incidence development.
