These forms are for GPs or other clinicians to fill out, to follow up cases of invasive haemophilus influenzae disease.
A case of H. influenzae infection is considered invasive if the organism was isolated from a normally sterile site, such as blood culture, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), joint fluid, pleural fluid, or similar.
See the age and gender appropriate questionnaires requesting information on clinical presentation, risk factors, complications and outcome. The patient’s general practitioner (GP) or other clinician can complete the form.
The follow up form for women includes questions specific to women of childbearing age regarding pregnancy.
