Abstract

As shown in Chapter 4, therapy is a feedback-control process occurring over a period of time. It involves assessing the patient’s need for treatment, administering appropriate therapy, and monitoring its subsequent effect. Therapy planning can be defined as the task of selecting appropriate actions for a particular patient in order to improve the patient’s condition, given the available clinical information (Quaglini et al., 1992).
