Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) Surveillance Reports
Quarterly Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) Surveillance Reports

Features:

  • Since 2008, there have been documented reports of CPE in Ontario hospitals, however, little is currently known about the extent of occurrence in the province. In December 2011, Public Health Ontario (PHO) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Long‐Term Care initiated a voluntary surveillance program to assess the epidemiology of CPE in Ontario. Epidemiological data is critical for informing infection prevention and control policies and procedures that will help prevent the likelihood of CPE becoming endemic in Ontario.

Ontario Burden of Cancer image

Cancer Care Ontario and Public Health Ontario partnered to produce, Environmental Burden of Cancer in Ontario, a report that sheds light on the impact of environmental carcinogens by calculating, for the first time, the annual environmental burden of cancer in Ontario. Results show that environmental carcinogens are responsible for approximately twice the cancer burden from alcohol consumption and approximately one-half the cancer burden from smoking.
