Dear College members,

Forum on the use of diagnostic tests & Tamiflu in influenza

Date: 7th June 2016
Time: 7: 30 pm
Venue: Function Room 1, 2/F, HKAM building

The recent concern from both the medical community and the general public over the use of diagnostic tests and Tamiflu in influenza has generated much discussion, and at times confusion.

In order to help clarify some of the issues involved, our College Council will host a Forum, with a 30 minutes presentation by David Lung and Susan Chiu on the use of diagnostic tests and Tamiflu respectively, followed by a 1.5 hours discussion, on the 7th June 2016 in our HKAM Building.

We hope this Forum will enable our members to share views, discuss issues, and come up with consensus, if possible, for helping us to face the next influenza outbreak.

Please come and help your College to come up with a stand on this.

Yu Lung LAU
President
