Practice Description: 

Three screening algorithms describe initial management of adults and children with suspected pandemic influenza. The flow charts provide criteria for self care at home, supervised outpatient management, admission for a short in-patient stay, and critical care admission. The algorithms describe initial management strategies that can be used to triage patients to home care or to other types of acute medical care.
