I am trying to fit a Weibull PH model with a gaussian frailty term
(kidney data). Is the following approach correct?
1. Fit the model using survReg with the frailty term added in.
Kidn1<-survreg(formula = Surv(rtime, event)~
2. Based on Venables and Ripley (350-353), divide the negative of the
coefficients by the scale parameter to obtain the Weibull PH model
