Description:
This evidence-based program will provide pharmacists with updates on best practices for identifying influenza and guiding the use of antiviral therapy, which is currently underused, even among high-risk patients who are susceptible to worse outcomes. The program will acquaint pharmacists with shifts in influenza diagnosis and care that have been prompted by the emergence of COVID-19, and the availability of a first-in-class oral antiviral agent, for which data, indications, and formulations continue to accumulate, warranting immediate practice changes in both treatment and prophylaxis.

Target Audience:
This activity has been designed to address the educational needs of community, health-system, and hospital pharmacists. It may also benefit other clinicians involved in the care of patients with, or at risk for, influenza virus infection.

 

Speaker: Jason E. Bowling, MD, FIDSA Associate Professor Department of Medicine Division of Infectious Diseases UT Health San Antonio San Antonio, TX
