Opdracht: Measuring Individualized Treatment Programs


Measuring Individualized Treatment Programs

Problem Description

Traditionally, treatments are applied to groups and mean differences across groups are examined to measure the effectiveness of a program. For an individualized program, persons receive different treatments from the same doctor, and individual change is measured to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. The effect of the group is ignored, although individuals share instructions from the same doctor. In a (simulation) study, the influence of the group is examined when measuring the effectiveness of an personalized treatment.
