IDSA Influenza Conference Available Online, with CME Credit

IDSA members can register for free to view sessions from IDSA’s Seasonal and Pandemic Influenza 2011 conference online. While the conference took place Jan. 27-28, if you were unavailable on these dates, you can still view the sessions on-demand and earn CME credits.

This year’s program featured an array of topics including epidemiology, cross-cutting issues like communication, antiviral deployment, and infrastructure and surge. Speakers addressed:

  • the international impact of pandemic and seasonal influenza
  • new pandemic and seasonal influenza planning strategies, including the role of state and public health officials
  • the improvement of public-private sector coordination efforts, particularly related to vaccine developments

Participants included members of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), state and local health officials, and ID professionals.

The conference aims to identify domestic scientific and policy developments and discuss specific needs of resource-poor countries. The meeting will result in recommendations for future research and intervention for unmet needs, and in recommendations for how the developing world can address pandemic priorities.
