Bagne, Curtis A.; Lewis, Ronald F.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n2 p225-39 Apr 1992
Introduces strategy for evaluating how drugs, administered in varying doses, affect dependent variables (physiological, psychological, and social functioning and quality of life) that fluctuate in level. Tests hypotheses with statistics computed from benefit/harm scores, measuring longitudinal associations between dose and dependent variable values. Strategy yields more reliable and valid within-patient indicators of treatment effects. (Author/NB)
