From Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer related to antimicrobial resistance, the report Handle with Care: Preserving Antibiotics Now and Into the Future is now available: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/corporate/publications/chief-public-health-officer-reports-state-public-health-canada/preserving-antibiotics.html
Antibiotics are critically important medications for treating serious and often life-threatening infections. Yet, the more we use antibiotics unnecessarily, the less effective they become as the bacteria that cause infections develop resistance to the medications. This report describes why people may be prescribed antibiotics unnecessarily and what we can do about it.
