The package provides functions to perform the analysis of semi-competing risks or univariate survival data with either hazard regression (HReg) models or accelerated failure time (AFT) models. The framework is flexible in the sense that:
1) it can handle cluster-correlated or independent data;
2) the option to choose between parametric (Weibull) and semi-parametric (mixture of piecewise exponential) specification for baseline hazard function(s) is available;
3) for clustered data, the option to choose between parametric (multivariate Normal for semicompeting risks data, Normal for univariate survival data) and semi-parametric (Dirichlet process mixture) specification for random effects distribution is available;
4) for semi-competing risks data, the option to choose between Makov and semi-Makov model is available.
The package includes following functions:
||Bayesian analysis of semi-competing risks data using HReg models|
||Bayesian analysis of semi-competing risks data using AFT models|
||Bayesian analysis of univariate survival data using HReg models|
||Bayesian analysis of univariate survival data using AFT models|
||Frequentist analysis of semi-competing risks data using HReg models|
||Frequentist analysis of univariate survival data using HReg models|
||Initiating starting values for Bayesian estimations with HReg models|
||Initiating starting values for Bayesian estimations with AFT models|
||Simulating semi-competing risks data under Weibull/Weibull-MVN model|
||Simulating survival data under Weibull/Weibull-Normal model|
