Health impact functions- new endpoints


(Ben Ewald) #1

I am writing a health impact function based on Bowe 2018 Lancet Planet Health 2018;
2: e301–12 so the endpoint is incident diabetes. Diabetes is not on the list of endpoints, and there does not appear to a category for ''öther". Is there a way of adding to this list?

Hi Ben,

You will need to create a new endpoint. You can do this by creating health impact function input file and defining the new endpoint in the list of Endpoint and Endpoint groups. Once you import this input file, the program will write the endpoint names to the database and they will appear among the dropdown list found in the health impact function editor window.

I hope this helps!
