Influenza hits every year…and it can be deadly. The reported deaths over the past years are staggering. And heart breaking. As a healthcare provider, you can do something about this…
Do you have patients that tell you they won’t get a flu shot because every year they get the shot, they get the flu?
In this recording, William “Barry” Inman, BA-BS, CIC, who works as a liaison between the Department of Health in Florida and the CDC, will arm you with evidence to show how getting a flu vaccine can help prevent hospitalization or worse for patients that get the flu after receiving their vaccination.
The possibility of inappropriate testing methodologies and delayed treatments with antivirals have been shown to be part of the current problems. This recording is packed with information on influenza vaccination, transmission, case studies, and the most up-to-date treatment strategies so you can step in, make a difference and save your patients lives!
