How might we improve standard Kaplan-Meier plots? Take the quick survey

18 May 2017

Kaplan-Meier plots are the standard method for displaying the results of survival analyses in time-to-event trials.

The KMunicate group of researchers at the MRC CTU at UCL and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has been thinking about how we might improve Kaplan-Meier plots in two aspects:

  • Showing how many participants contribute data over time;
  • Showing how the uncertainty of the survival estimate changes over time.

They have developed some potential solutions to these problems, and have now released a survey to find out what people like and don't like. If you have any experience with creation or interpretation of Kaplan-Meier plots, then the team would be very grateful if you could complete the short survey. The survey contains just 13 multiple choice questions and should take 5-10 minutes.

Please also feel free to share with any colleagues who would be interested.
