Evolving patient and clinical needs are resulting in the re-evaluation of the approach to influenza testing. Join the discussion on what factors are affecting the epidemiology of influenza and the clinical challenges in the assessment of actual influenza patients. Our experts will examine the current challenges with applying molecular testing outside of the centralized laboratory and discuss how rapid influenza test results can be applied to patient care.

What you will learn -

  • The epidemiology factors that affect seasonal influenza
  • Current clinical challenges in diagnosing influenza base on clinical symptoms
