Get Started


As this is a package extension, if you are new to {admiral} then the best place to first start reading would be this Get Started guide. This extension package follows the same main idea and conventions, and re-uses many functions from {admiral}, so it is important to thoroughly understand these to be able to use {admiralonco}.


The most important functions in {admiralonco} are the derivations. Again these follow the same conventions as {admiral} but are focused to oncology-specific needs.

Starting a Script

For the oncology ADaM data structures, an overview of the flow and example function calls for the most common steps are provided by the following vignettes:

{admiralonco} also provides template R scripts as a starting point. They can be created by calling use_ad_template() from {admiral}, e.g.,

  adam_name = "adrs",
  save_path = "./ad_adrs.R",
  package = "admiralonco"

A list of all available templates can be obtained by list_all_templates() from {admiral}:

list_all_templates(package = "admiralonco")
#> Existing ADaM templates in package 'admiralonco':
#> • ADRS
#> • ADTTE


Support is provided via the admiral Slack channel.
