Welcome: Inaugural Issue

Welcome to the first issue of the newsletter for the Effective Health Care Program. In this quarterly publication we will summarize the Program’s recent activities and new research findings.

In this issue, we highlight some of our most recent studies, including prostate cancer treatments, the use of beta blocker therapy for heart failure, the off-label use of atypical anti-psychotic drugs, medication therapy management programs, and associations between antidepressant use and pneumonia risk in the elderly.
