Simonsen, K., Hunskaar, S., Sandvik, H., and Rortveit, G. (2013). Capacity and Adaptations of General Practice During an Influenza Pandemic. PLoS One.
This Norwegian study of general practice and primary care doctors on duty in out-of-hours services reviewed consultations for influenza-like illness during the 2009 pandemic in comparison to the 2008-2009 influenza season. In both seasons, the majority of consultations occurred in general practice, but there was a 5.5 fold increase in out-of-hours consultations during the pandemic year.
