[R] multiple destinations in duration (survival) analysis

Hi,

I'm trying to estimate a (parametric) competing risks model in the context of duration (or survival, if you wish) analysis. That is, instead of studying the transition of subjects to "death", I wish to study the transitions to multiple *destinations* (which is different from studying multiple *durations*, or recurrent events). I am more interested in the hazard function rather than the survival, but that would do as some manipulations in the estimates will give me what I want.

Does any one know were I can find functions/routines to perform such estimation with R? I'd appreciate any tips on this.

Thanks,
Dimitri
