Clinical Trial Simulator - Your feedback is welcomed!

#1
Hi all

I hope it's alright if I introduce my clinical trial simulator app here. It's free and you can use it online to simulate a trial, check it out:

https://mzhku.shinyapps.io/trialsim/

Currently, it's a proof-of-concept with only the most basic features implemented. Let me know what kind of features you could use in your work. I envision the following use case:

How many patients need to be enrolled to achieve a given power (at specified delta, sigma and alpha)? --> Enter parameters, select model, run simulation and obtain the required (minimum) number of patients.

Thanks again for any feedback!

Without explanation for the inputs I'm only really guessing as to which each thing represents. After playing with it for a while I don't think even my initial guess as to what "patients" represented was correct.

Never underestimate the importance of documentation.

I added in a preliminary version of a help system (it shows what each variable is about when you hover over it with the mouse).

Thanks for your earlier input, greatly appreciated.
