"R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics" - The R Project
This group is designed for novice to expert R users to share tips, ideas, and experiences. Meetings will be designed to learn and challenge. A typical meetup will consist of brief socializing and a presentation. Added entertainment may consist of members discussing uncommon (but effective) uses for R, fun applications they've created, various competitions, etc.
Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are an increasingly important topic in healthcare that allows clinicians and researchers to hear from patients directly. One issue that emerges from this is the need to connect or "crosswalk" scores across different measures on the same or similar constructs (e.g., depressive symptoms). Recently the PROsetta package was created based on the work of Choi et al. (2014) to achieve this with diverse populations and subgroups. We will discuss the issue of cross-walking and how this package achieves this with examples.
