Public Health England publishes guidance on use of antivirals in influenza

Announcement Date: November 1, 2014

The recommendations are based on observational data and conclude that “it is essential that physicians treating severely unwell patients in any setting are not deterred from prescribing NAI drugs as a result of confusion over efficacy. This is especially true for patients hospitalised with proven or suspected influenza”.
