Dr. Eileen Pepler is a leading academic, researcher and consultant in human services. Eileen is a thought leader and specialist in change management, organization behaviour, project management, information systems and focuses on linking cost and outcomes in acute care, cancer, community services, mental health and addictions. She has more than 25 years of management consulting, health and social policy planning, research, sales, marketing, consulting and academic experience in both the public and private sectors. Today, her research and consulting engagements focus primarily on policy initiatives, leading large scale complex organizational change projects, economic delivery analyses, access and outcomes, service delivery scenario and simulation modeling, systems management and information technology and emerging technology particularly with respect to optimization of resources leading to improved outcomes in primary and cancer care, and mental health and addictions for children, youth, adults and seniors.

Eileen comments: "I use discrete-event simulation and system dynamics as modelling tools to explore ‘good strategy versus bad strategy and service pathway effectiveness. I am interested in incorporating behavioural factors in simulation models, in combining simulation methodologies, and in combining simulation with approaches such as optimization to assess and evaluate strategic and operational decision-making."
