The Dynamic Computer Interactive Decision Application (DCIDA) was developed by Dr. Nick Bansback during his postdoctoral research at the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia and a Research and a Scientist at the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences. Since obtaining his faculty position within the School, Dr. Bansback has continued its development.
Generous funding to support the development and testing of DCIDA has been received from:
- Canadian Arthritis Network and Pfizer Canada for Dr. Bansback’s Postdoctoral Fellowship
- Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation and The Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control (ARCC) for pilot work
- The Arthritis Society for a proof of concept study
