Community-Associated Case Control Study

CA-MRSA is a growing concern in northern Saskatchewan.  We have initiated a case-control study to determine the risk factors associated with CA-MRSA infection involved in the Kelsey Trail Health Region (KTHR) and the Mamawetan Churchill River Regional Health Authority (MCRRHA).

Hypothesis:  The risk factors associated with CA-MRSA in the KTHR and MCRRHA will most likely be linked to close contact between individuals with mild skin abrasions or insect bites.

To raise awareness of the study in the community posters were placed in community health centres describing the study. PDF Download PDF
