The faculty and students of the UIC Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy (PSOP) 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 and presentations at scientific meetings.
The publications listed below provide examples of the types of research conducted by the faculty and students of PSOP.
