Special Issue 3: Personalized (N-of-1) Trials: Methods, Applications, and Impact
A new special issue of Harvard Data Science Review (HDSR)
This special issue of HDSR serves as a primer for data scientists, methodologists, clinicians, and students about personalized (N-of-1) trials. Containing contributions representing a wide range in fields, this special collection covers personalized trial methods and design considerations, data analytic and statistical approaches, and best practices for reporting, ethics, and conduct. The issue concludes with use cases of personalized trials that range from presentation of results to patients, medication side-effect testing, lower back pain management, and multimorbidity disease management.
