Medically Acceptable Temporal Relationship

Definition

A temporal relationship is the timing between a factor and an outcome which can be used to assign causality to a relationship. In the medical context, a temporal relationship between a triggering event and an illness is “medically acceptable” if the time frame between the event and illness would reasonably support the conclusion that the event caused the illness.
