Hospitalizations and Emergency Department Visits Due to Opioid Poisoning in Canada
This report — a joint effort by CIHI and the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse — uses data submitted to the Hospital Morbidity Database by all Canadian provinces and territories. It examines pan-Canadian trends in hospitalizations due to opioid poisoning related to patient demographics, clinical characteristics and provincial/territorial rates. It also includes an analysis of emergency department visits in Alberta and Ontario using data from the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System.
