Psychiatric pharmacoepidemiology for children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article attempted to introduce the child psychiatric research and clinical practice reader to the possibilities for addressing drug evaluation questions from an epidemiologic research perspective. Pharmacoepidemiology would extend the current research model by ensuring that knowledge of drug prevalence is routinely made available. In addition, it would develop methods for assessing long-term effectiveness and systematic methods for assessing drug safety. Controversial questions about the role of psychopharmacology in the management of children would be well addressed by the provision of empiric data to advocates who support or challenge these practices.
