Differentiating influenza from other viruses, and treating high-risk patients in a timely manner to avoid over-burdening the healthcare system, has never been more relevant. Join us for a timely, expert-led CPE program that will marry the current data and guideline recommendations on influenza testing, diagnosis, and antiviral treatment with engaging whiteboard animation case studies, so you are prepared to apply the latest updates in influenza to clinical practice now.
