The publications listed below provide examples of the types of research and scholarship conducted by the faculty and students of the Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy.

The faculty and students of the UIC Department of Pharmacy Systems Outcomes and Policy conduct research that is used inform public policy and that impacts how society uses medications, and pharmacy and related health care services. In order to do this, the Department actively seeks to translate and disseminates its research findings in scholarly publications. Many of these were in high-impact journals, including The LancetMedical Decisions MakingBritish Medical JournalJAMA Internal Medicine, and Pharmacotherapy, among others. Below is a list of recent publications by the faculty and students of the Department.
