This report evaluated the evidence for the installation of antimicrobial copper surfaces as an infection control mechanism in health care settings. Limited evidence was found at the time of publication (2015); confirmation of a sustained reduction in infection rates over time and the cost-effectiveness of replacing existing surfaces with antimicrobial copper surfaces in Canadian health care facilities remains to be determined.
