Flu Season 2011: What Military Healthcare Providers Should Know   [open pdf - 522KB]

"The flu season is not just a time of routine vaccination. For military healthcare providers, the flu season can provide patient-centered care opportunities: building new patient relationships; reassuring patients who are feeling the stressors of war and/or its aftermath; and, educating young parents and families about general hygiene. Healthcare providers play a significant role in medical intervention (disease surveillance, identification, and treatment) and in influencing patient behaviors for protecting individual, family, and public health. Addressing your patient's questions about the flu provides a 'teachable moment' for educating patients, especially parents, about important health habits that can last a lifetime."
