Enhanced data have been collected on European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (EARS-Net) isolates since 2004 in Ireland.

The enhanced programme aims to guide local and national preventative strategies for antimicrobial resistant infections. Enhanced data demonstrates trends in the association of infection with specific factors over time: community or healthcare-associated, potentially preventable sources of bloodstream infection (e.g., intravenous catheters and urinary catheters). The ultimate aim is to improve overall patient safety.
