Extended Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data

Description

Fit joint models for longitudinal and time-to-event data under the Bayesian approach. Multiple longitudinal outcomes of mixed type (continuous/categorical) and multiple event times (competing risks and multi-state processes) are accommodated.

This package fits joint models for longitudinal and time-to-event data. It can accommodate multiple longitudinal outcomes of different type (e.g., continuous, dichotomous, ordinal, counts), and assuming different distributions, i.e., Gaussian, Student's-t, Gamma, Beta, unit Lindley, censored Normal, Binomial, Poisson, Negative Binomial, and Beta-Binomial. For the event time process, right, left and interval censored data can be handled, while competing risks and multi-sate processes are also covered.

JMbayes2 fits joint models using Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms implemented in C++. The package also offers several utility functions that can extract useful information from fitted joint models. The most important of those are included in the See also Section below.
