The tern R package contains analysis functions to create tables and graphs used for clinical trial reporting.

The package provides a large range of functionality, for example:

  • Data visualizations:
    • forest plots
    • line plots
    • Kaplan-Meier plots
  • Statistical model fits:
    • logistic regression
    • Cox regression
  • Summary tables:
    • unique patients
    • exposure across patients
    • change from baseline for parameters

Many of these outputs are available to be added into teal applications for interactive exploration of data. These teal modules are available in the teal.modules.clinical package.
