As I posted recently, I’m involved in a couple of events, later this summer: our annual Summer School and the new(er) tradition of the R for HTA workshop.

Summer is really going to be busy, this year. But in a good way… In June, I’ll be at our annual summer school in Florence. This year, we have a slight change in the line-up — Nicky has decided to take a break from teaching with us, which is a shame, (although I understand, as she’s so busy). On the...

October 18, 2018
By

I have just submitted a revised version of survHE on CRAN — it should be up very shortly. This will be version 1.0.64 and its main feature is a major restructuring in the way the rstan/HMC stuff works. Basically, this is due to a change in the default C++ compiler.

By

Nathan Green has alerted/invited me to another workshop aimed at increasing the use of R in Health Economics. He and I had some discussion in the past few months and especially around the time we were running our workshop back in July. The “scoping” workshop at Imperial has also a very interesting set up — all the details are here....
