Competing risks occur when a patient experiencing one type of event that changes the probability of developing a second type of event. For example, it may be of interest to examine whether the incidence of death due to disease is different in two subgroups of patients, where death due to other causes is defined as a competing risk.
Tests to compare the cumulative risk of one event in subgroups of patients have been developed and are commonly used. However, another hypothesis of interest is in testing whether the cumulative distributions of two competing events are different. In this seminar, I will discuss previously developed methods on this problem and also share our preliminary work.
