Although the impact of influenza varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. Unfortunately, there is an unmet need for better diagnostic modalities, as well as treatments for patients with influenza infection, preventative measures, and better mitigation for the impact of a pandemic. Antiviral agents with different targets and mechanisms of action provide multiple therapeutic options, including combinations of 2 or more compounds, holding promise to improve treatment effectiveness. In this live continuing medical education activity, expert faculty will examine various diagnostic modalities and therapies used for patients with influenza.
