 ​
Interested in proposing a project using the CER2 dataset?


Please contact Margaret Wright​, PhD at (630) 626-6629. 

Examples of Studies:

  • ​Pediatric Hypertension
  • ADHD diagnosis and prescribing
  • Patterns of prescribing for psychotropic mediactions
  • Prescribing patterns and safety profile of antipsychotics risperidone and aripiprazole
  • Benchmarking antibiotic use to inform outpatient stewardship


PROS/CER
