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.
