PROC QLEARN

Overview

PROC QLEARN, developed by the Methodology Center, is a SAS procedure for analyzing data from a sequential, multiple assignment, randomized trial (SMART) to develop adaptive interventions. The procedure uses a generalization of Q-learning, which allows treatments and covariates vary over time. Compatible with SAS version 9.1 or higher. Features include

  • works with two-decision-stages,
  • obtains confidence intervals for the regression parameters from decision stage 1,
  • enables construction of more richly-individualized adaptive interventions, and
  • takes full advantage of data generated during a SMART.
