T3- Part 1
Discuss your team’s response to this situation as indicated below:
Question 1: What strategies could be implemented to improve work attendance? With the widespread closure of school districts, how could the inability of some parents/guardians to stay home from work to watch affect their children/youth?
Question 2: How should Tamiflu® be allocated if a shortage is experienced? Who should receive it as a priority? What are your other treatment options?
Question 3: How will outbreak information be communicated to the public so that information is clear and consistent?
Question 4: What should be communicated to patients who are “worried well” and scheduling appointments?
Question 5: Given your knowledge of how anxiety and panic is influenced by uncertainty, how would you encourage communication with parents, children, and the community at this time?
Question 6: Since there is no effective vaccine for this strain of HPAI, are there other preventive care options for your patients?
Question 7: You recognize that pneumonia is a common complication that occurs for many patients who have had the flu. What would be the role of antibiotics in managing patients with bacterial pneumonia secondary to influenza?
Question 8: What considerations would the team have regarding patient triage given the limitations of personnel and resources at this time
