Dr. Carleton’s lifelong goal is to make medication use more effective and safer for all patients, particularly children.

His research focus is on the impact of drug therapy on human health and quality of life. He is particularly interested in developing better ways to evaluate the effectiveness of drugs, medication-use models designed to improve patient health, as well as practical surveillance systems to improve the safe use of medication.

A key element of Dr. Carleton’s research is the communication of results to clinicians, patients, healthcare administrators, and government officials – those who also hold responsibilities to improve patient care and our systems of healthcare delivery.
