Abstract

Pharmacoepidemiology has become an important tool for identifying patterns of drug use and adverse drug reactions in the general population. Drug data bases derived from population-based samples have been particularly useful in addressing questions such as adherence to national guidelines for the treatment of chronic diseases. As part of the Pawtucket Heart Health Program, a continuing community-based research and demonstration project, detailed information regarding the use of drugs among the general population of two southeastern New England cities was collected using cross-sectional and longitudinal methodologies.
