An introduction to Travel Health for registered health professionals (nurses, pharmacists or doctors) who are looking to expand their clinical practice into providing Travel Health consultations. It can also be a refresher for clinicians already working in Travel Health but who have not had an update for quite a while. This course uses practical examples and case studies to give an overview of how to provide effective and high-quality Travel Health consultations.
This course is structured around the Good Practice Guidelines for providing a Travel Health Service (RCPSG) and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Travel Health Competencies.
