My work in medical ethics has centered on the use of Bayesian sequential methods to improve patient outcomes in clinical trials, by using the data from past participants in the trial. The difficult point is to do so in a way that maintains the interpretability of the data as bearing on the effects of the treatments, uncontaminated by the choice of treatment.
