Cold & flu management explained

Why is this important?

Common cold and influenza often only require symptomatic treatment. Pharmacists can advise on strategies to manage risk factors and symptoms, re-enforcing inappropriateness of antibiotics in viral illnesses.

What is your role as a pharmacist?

Pharmacists are required to give advice on the management of cold and flu in addition to selecting the most appropriate product to manage symptoms.

What’s in it for you?

Pharmacists will acquire knowledge to manage people who present with cold and flu symptoms to optimise quality use of medicines, including collaboration with other health professionals.

  • Describe the latest evidence for the symptomatic management of colds and flus
  • Discuss counselling points for patients when they present to the pharmacy with colds and flus
  • Discuss strategies pharmacists can use to optimise quality use of medicines in the management of colds and flus, including collaboration with other health professionals.
