Developed in conjunction with a practicing primary care physician and an anatomy professor, this poster covers the areas of influenza that are essential for all patients to understand. This chart clearly displays how the virus spreads and areas of the body that are affected. It details how to prevent influenza and ways to help prevent the spread of influenza once you have it, as well as special risk factors and complications and highlights the importance of getting a flu shot.
For patients, this chart encourages the importance of the flu shot, and gives additional information regarding what to do when the flu has been contracted, including reminding patients why antibiotics are ineffective in the treatment of the flu. Also includes answers to three of the most common patient questions - How to tell the difference between a cold and the flu, whether the stomach flu is the same as influenza, and whether symptoms are different in children.
