Description

Usage

2
Add_CostBenefit_Axis(xlim, cost.benefits, n.cost.benefits = 6, line = 4,
  policy, ...)

Arguments

xlim

range of x-axis.

cost.benefits

Character vector of the form c('c1:b1', 'c2:b2', ..., 'cn:bn') with integers ci, bi corresponding to specific cost:benefit ratios to print.

n.cost.benefits

number of cost:benefit ratios to print if cost.benefit.axis = TRUE (default n.cost.benefit = 6).

line

x-axis line to print the axis (default is 4).

policy

Either 'opt-in' (default) or 'opt-out', describing the type of policy for which to report the net benefit. A policy is 'opt-in' when the standard-of-care for a population is to assign a particular 'treatment' to no one. Clinicians then use a risk model to categorize patients as 'high-risk', with the recommendation to treat high-risk patients with some intervention. Alternatively, an 'opt-out' policy is applicable to contexts where the standard-of-care is to recommend a treatment to an entire patient population. The potential use of a risk model in this setting is to identify patients who are 'low-risk' and recommend that those patients 'opt-out' of treatment.

...

other options sent to 'axis'.

Value

List with components threshold, value and name.
