Some authors propose the use of a risk-adjusted survival time cumulative sum (RAST CUSUM) control chart to monitor a time-to-event outcome, possibly right censored, using conventional survival models, which do not contemplate the possibility of cure of a patient. We propose to extend this approach considering a risk-adjusted CUSUM chart, based on… CONTINUE READING
