The Data Studio Workshop brings together a biomedical investigator with a group of experts for an in-depth session to solicit advice about statistical and study design issues that arise while planning or conducting a research project. This week, the investigator(s) will discuss the following project with the group.


This observational study consists of two patient groups: the treatment group receives combined radiation with Chemotherapy (XRT+Chemo) and the control group receives Chemotherapy (Chemo). Our project concerns competing risk regression for cardiac events. Death is a competing risk. Some of the covariates of interest only apply to the XRT+Chemo patients, namely, those related to radiation.


What is the risk for breast cancer patients of cardiac events after either XRT+Chemo or Chemo?
