Antibiotic utilization is a known driver of antibiotic resistance. A large proportion of antibiotic prescriptions are inappropriate, so efforts are needed to reduce the misuse and overuse of these important resources.
BCCDC monitors trends in antibiotic resistance and antibiotic utilization in BC.
Each year, we compile, analyze and interpret data on these key outcomes. We present our findings on four dashboards. These interactive tools provide measures and trends of antimicrobial utilization and resistance in BC and have been designed to allow you to select the data you would like to view.
