This webinar will address two analyses of routine surveillance data designed to support parameterisation and construction of mechanistic mathematical models of AMR.
The story is a relatable patient journey through the eyes of a caregiver, with suggestions on what patients can do to self- advocate and partner with healthcare providers to slow the emergence and control the spread of AMR.
This case story, along with other stories of ‘joint action for equity’ in the Learning from Practice series, offers insights about how partnerships can begin, what helps them succeed, and where roles or systems can change to improve population health and health equity.
In this presentation, we examine the successful interventions and outcomes from the Alberta and BC community antimicrobial stewardship programs. We finish with a discussion of next steps in making the case for other provincial community antimicrobial stewardship programs.
Antimicrobial Awareness Week (formerly Antibiotic Awareness Week), November 18 – 24, promotes informed, careful use of these life-saving medicines to help keep them working for future generations.
This narrative review explores how social sciences research may contribute to our understanding of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antibiotic prescribing in human health and inform mitigation strategies. The review identifies over 80 examples of social sciences research related to AMR.

The Public Health Agency of Canada funded public opinion research to assess the Canadian public’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to antimicrobial resistance and antibiotic use. This presentation examines these research findings and raises considerations for AMR awareness campaigns and stewardship work.
The authors conducted a review of peer-review literature and analyzed terminology usage. The intent of this document is to provide public health practitioners and policy makers across disciplines with a lexicon that can lead to consensus.
This webinar presents findings from the 2021 Canadian Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (CARSS) Report, released April 25, 2022.
The report summarizes the key concepts of each presentation and discussion panel, from the One Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Conference, hosted by the ABVMA March 10-12, 2021.
In this webinar, Dr. Simon Otto (University of Alberta) and Margaret Haworth-Brockman (NCCID) present the results of the evaluation of integrated One Health AMR surveillance in Canada and describe the novel assessment tool.
