It pays to be Bayes

Yes, indeed. I’m looking forward to getting this sent off for publication. Wilson asked my advice about his pilot RCT in stroke rehab, and the outcomes were so complicated it took me a long time to work out what to do to utilise all the information without dropping any. Thankfully I had been reading Song & Lee’s book “Basic and Advanced Bayesian Structural Equation Modeling (with applications in the medical and behavioral sciences)” and was able to fit one of these wonderfully flexible models to the data.

It was truly one of the most satisfying projects I’ve ever contributed to, because his clinical expertise and my stats added to up something that neither of us could have done alone, and actually changed the results substantively! But you’ll have to wait to read our findings…
