Title: Constructing Confidence Sets for the Optimal Dynamic Regime

Address: 615 N Wolfe Street, Baltimore, MD, , USA
Keywords: causal inference ; observational data ; confidence intervals ; dynamic treatment regimes

In many practical applications, treatment assignment depends on previous covariates and prior treatment. It may be beneficial to define treatment "rules" (otherwise referred to as dynamic treatment regimes) in order to identify optimal patient outcomes. We build on a recent paper (Orellana, Rotnitzky & Robins 2010) to develop and implement an algorithm for construction of valid confidence regions for the optimal dynamic treatment regime using linear programming.
