Novel Community Pharmacy Service: Tamiflu Clinic

Description

A “Tamiflu Clinic” is a unique and innovative service that can be offered in the community pharmacy. This pharmacist-run clinic increases patient access to care, decreases urgent care or emergency room visits, and alleviates the burden of flu in the community. Initiation of this service will increase accessibly to Tamiflu® (oseltamivir) and thus minimize duration of flu and costs associated with it. Furthermore, it will allow pharmacists to integrate themselves into collaborative practice through an interprofessional patient-centered team approach.  It will also increase pharmacists’ presence and impact in the healthcare arena.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe annual direct and indirect costs associated with influenza illness in the U.S.

  • Assess a patient presenting with influenza-like symptoms to determine eligibility for Tamiflu® (oseltamivir)
  • Given patient’s case initiate Tamiflu® (oseltamivir) in eligible patients
