Additional tools for Parametric Survival Models (a.k.a. Accelerated Failure Time Models)

The R package AFTtools provides additional tools to work with parametric survival models fitted by survival::survreg.

To select the most appropriate distribution for the model, several models with different distributions can be fit with only one call of compare_PSMdist(). Parallel computation can be used to fasten the model estimations. The result can be printed as a nice table by show_comparison().

Population average predictions (survival and quantiles) from parametric survival models with frailties can be made using predict_survreg(). Bootstrap confidence intervals of the predictions are also provided.

The functions AFTplot(), CSRplot(), Iplot(), and NPplot() produce diagnostic plots.

NPplot() depends on interval which requires the package Icens from Bioconductor.
