COVID and Drug Use; Rapid monitoring of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on trends in drug supply

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy

Studies are needed to understand the impact of the pandemic on drug supply, and to confirm or refute anecdotal and theoretical reports of disease improvement and/or worsening due to the use of these medications. Our group of researchers from across Canada plans to use established infrastructure and national and provincial data to provide a rapid-response national picture of prescription drug use within the COVID-19 pandemic and measure and monitor the consequences of any shifts in medication use.
