You should be fine with the standard HTTP cache control and expiry  
headers. If a cache chooses to ignore these, then users get stale  
data, and there's nothing you can do about it.

One solution is to put a session ID in the URL.

Also make sure you're using the correct (303, 307) redirect codes,  
not, e.g., 302.
