EDUCATION AND RESOURCES
Interested in Influenza Vaccine Delivery? Earn CMEs by Using a New Physician Resource from NFID and ICID
Seasonal influenza is a major global health concern, annually affecting one in six individuals in the U.S. More than 200,000 individuals are hospitalized, and 3,000–50,000 deaths occur each year due to influenza-related complications. Adults age 65 years and older are at higher risk of influenza complications. They are 10–30 times more likely to be hospitalized due to influenza-associated illness, and require longer hospital stays than younger adults. These effects are even more pronounced with increase in age. To promote, educate, and share information about the burden of seasonal influenza in the U.S., the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), in partnership with the International Center for Infectious Diseases (ICID), and mdBriefCase Group Inc., developed a resource called the Influenza Knowledge Transfer Series. This complimentary educational activity was designed for healthcare professionals interested and involved in influenza vaccine delivery. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of NFID and ICID. NFID is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. This free activity is accredited for 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. The activity includes two modules:
 
Module 1: Immunization challenges and options for vaccination strategies
Module 2: Case studies of a healthy 70-year-old female patient and a 79-year-old male patient with diabetes
