The joint effects of multiple exposures on an outcome are frequently of interest in epidemiologic research. In 2001, Hernán et al (J Am Stat Assoc. 2001;96:440-448) presented methods for estimating the joint effects of multiple time-varying exposures subject to time-varying confounding affected by prior exposure using joint marginal structural models. Nonetheless, the use of these joint models is rare in the applied literature. Minimal uptake of these joint models, in contrast to the now widely… CONTINUE READING
