From EBSCO Publishing, on its free Influenza Evidence-Based Information Portal with content for doctors, nurses, and the general public:

Due to Pandemic H1N1 Influenza (formerly known as Swine Flu) and concerns about the 2009/2010 flu season, the EBSCO Publishing Medical and Nursing editors of DynaMed™, Nursing Reference Center™ (NRC) and Patient Education Reference Center™ (PERC) have made key influenza information from these resources freely available to health care providers worldwide.

The editorial teams will monitor the research and update these resources continuously throughout the upcoming flu season.

The portal includes clinical summary information for providers on both H1N1 (swine) flu and “normal” seasonal flu, as well as patient hand-outs on both types of flu in numerous languages.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is another great source of updated and free flu information for providers and the public, again on both H1N1 and seasonal flu.

Finally, consumer health resource MedlinePlus serves as a great starting point, with patient-level pages on seasonal and H1N1 flu.
