Example of Longitudinal Studies

  • 1636 Accesses

Abstract

In this chapter, we look beyond the first test and provide sample longitudinal studies. Here we attempt to answer the questions: “Why test?” “How to intervene?” “What are the expected outcomes?” As examples we offer a diabetic and a hypertensive patient as examples.
