In spring 2019, the Public Health Agency of Canada will be implementing a prevalence survey in long-term care facilities across Canada in partnership with IPAC Canada. The objective of the survey will be to assess infection or colonization caused by antimicrobial resistant organisms, and prevalence of antibiotic use among long-term care residents. This session will provide participants with an overview of the survey, and opportunities to ask questions about becoming involved.
