The annual reports provide final surveillance data and key findings on antimicrobial resistance and use.
The short reports contain raw final data (presented in tables and figures) without interpretation.
Beginning in 2014, the Human Antimicrobial Use Reports integrate information from multiple Public Health Agency of Canada antibiotic resistance surveillance programs, including CIPARS and the Canadian Nosocomial Infection Surveillance Program (CNISP).
This integrated version provides a more comprehensive picture of antibiotic use in Canada. It contains data on the number of antibiotics dispensed by pharmacies, the total cost of antibiotics used in hospitals, the most common disease/conditions requiring antibiotic use, and the total amount of antibiotics used by Canadians.

These reports are generated every three months and provide summary results about the Salmonella serovars recovered from the different surveillance components of CIPARS broken down by animal species. Please contact us for a copy of these summaries.
