February 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
CT-AAP and the Foundation for Children will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 12:00 pm EST. In this activity, an expert in influenza discusses the use of antiviral therapy in pediatric patients with influenza.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pediatricians, family and general medicine physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients with influenza.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the underutilization of antiviral treatment for both adult and pediatric patients in the management of influenza, despite recommendations from practice guidelines.
- Describe the benefits and shortcomings associated with the use of diagnostic assays in detecting influenza in terms of sensitivity, specificity, and convenience.
- Assess currently available and novel/emerging antiviral therapies for the treatment of pediatric patients with influenza, based on the latest clinical data concerning efficacy, safety, tolerability, dosing, and routes of administration.
- Select antiviral treatment for pediatric patients with influenza, based on the latest clinical evidence and current guideline recommendations.
