Episode 270: Antivirals for the flu – something to sneeze about
In episode 270, the Mikes and Tina and James stay viral, and discuss the best available evidence around the use of antiviral medications for treatment of the flu. At the end, we all agree there is an effect and that the person who should make the decision should be the patient once they have had the benefits and harms appropriately explained. Shared decision-making, a concept that is certainly nothing to be sneezed at.
