AURA 2016

First Australian report on antimicrobial use and resistance in human health.

The report includes analyses of antimicrobial resistance, antimicrobial use and the appropriateness of antimicrobial prescribing in Australian hospitals, aged care services, general practice and the community. A data supplement, summary report and a consumer summary are also available. AURA 2016 included analyses of antimicrobial use and antimicrobial resistance data coordinated by the AURA Surveillance System from 2014.

The report set the baseline to allow monitoring of trends over time, and highlighted areas where future work would inform action to prevent the spread of antimicrobial resistance.
