In this article the authors present simulation studies to demonstrate how various n-of-1 methodological designs, such as carryover effects, number/order of treatment periods and sampling frequency affect the ability to detect differences between treatments tested using N-of-1 trials. The simulation software developed is available on GitHub (please see the paper for more details about how to access the software). The authors conclude with a set of important recommendations for the design and optimisation of future N-of-1 trials.
