Publications

The CNODES network of researchers, trainees, and analysts conduct studies using administrative healthcare data in response to queries from Canadian regulators. The results of these studies are published in open-access academic journals. CNODES also publishes a selection of its methodological advances, knowledge translation initiatives, and trainee projects.
