The main purpose of this study is to see if patients with the flu would receive oseltamivir
treatment more quickly if it were prescribed by a pharmacist as compared to a physician, and
to see if there is any difference in the effect of treatment on flu symptoms and overall
health. Another reason for doing the study is to see how accurately pharmacists can diagnose
the flu as compared to physicians. Viruses that are exposed to antiviral medications (like
oseltamivir) sometimes develop a resistance to the medication. This means that the medication
is no longer as effective in treating the symptoms caused by the virus. The development of
viral resistance to oseltamivir will also be followed in this study.
