This release, which includes static and interactive data tables, provides the most up-to-date information on emergency department (ED) visits and time spent in the ED for reporting jurisdictions in Canada.

Selected indicators and contextual measures will be updated with the most recent year of data. These include indicators about long-term care, the hospital standardized mortality ratio and potentially avoidable mortality. CIHI’s Indicator Library will also be updated.

This descriptive analysis uses data from 2 sources — the Hospital Morbidity Database and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System — to examine pan-Canadian trends of hospitalizations and emergency department visits due to opioid poisoning in relation to patient demographics, clinical characteristics and provincial/territorial rates.
