Model Validation, Generalisability and Limitations
- Pp. 66-75 (10)Agnes E.G. Walker

To the extent possible, credibility should be widely established among, for example, potential users, researchers, medical practitioners, policy developers and health administrators. This Chapter summarises work carried out to establish credibility, in addition to the work that had been reported in a peer reviewed Journal .
