Alberta Emergency Department Presentation Surveillance Project



With funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT, a group of University of Alberta researchers sought to describe the presentations to Alberta Emergency Departments (EDs) for several respiratory conditions.


Additional research sprung from the original project and a variety of publications have been produced. This website provides a list of these publications, and those from our past related work. Alberta Health and Wellness has been a key partner in this work by providing access to administrative health data, in particular the Alberta Ambulatory Care Classification System.
