The objective of this chapter is to demonstrate the use of hybrid modelling for management decision support. The chapter presents three separate case studies that are unified both by the common theme of using different modelling techniques in a hybrid manner and by the health and social care context. The first case study combines the use of system dynamics and agent-based modelling to better understand and control the spread of a specific drug-resistant pathogen in hospitals; the second case study demonstrates how a hybrid system dynamics and discrete-event simulation model can support clinical and management decision making in the context of sexual health services; and the third case study is dedicated to the investigation of a hybrid model that consists of a system-dynamics-inspired cell-based population model and a discrete-event simulation model, and is used to explore the performance of the contact centre for long-term care for people aged 65 and over.
