News, Public Health, Public Service: H1N1 Fact Page from Ebsco

This year, Ebsco Publishing has created an evidence-based medicine source for current factual diagnostic or treatment information for H1N1 influenza virus, written for clinicians, nurses and the general public.

This site is open to anyone in the world to access, at no cost.  Following is a brief description found on the front page of Ebsco Publishing Influenza Evidence-Based Information Portal:

Due to Pandemic H1N1 Influenza (formerly known as Swine Flu) and concerns about the 2009/2010 flu season, the EBSCO Publishing Medical and Nursing editors of DynaMed, Nursing Reference Center™ (NRC) and Patient Education Reference Center™ (PERC) have made key influenza information from these resources freely available to health care providers worldwide. The information is designed to inform patients and their families, and provide information to clinicians to help them with H1N1 diagnosis and H1N1 treatment by making up-to-date diagnosis and treatment information availableThis site includes more than 50 evidence-based topics including patient education information in 17 languages.”
