Renal flu plan revised July 2009

The Renal Flu Plan has been revised. It includes prescribing info for antivirals in advanced CKD. This guidance document has been produced for adult renal units in the UK, to help in their preparation and planning for a possible future influenza pandemic. It summarises key background aspects to such a pandemic, and detailed consideration as to how the vital aspects of the renal service can be maintained and non-essential work curtailed, during the huge challenges to the safe and effective delivery of health care that will result.
