About the event
This will be a highly interactive and engaging live streamed course delivered virtually.
The trainers will use an interactive tool which will facilitate voting, taking part in case studies, sharing ideas/opinions, Q&A’s and enables the delegates to ask questions and interact with the trainer.
This two day Introduction to Travel Health course is intended for registered health professionals (Registered Nurses, Nursing Associates, Paramedics, Pharmacists & GP’s) who may be new to the field of Travel Health, those returning to travel health after a long gap, or for those already practicing who may not have undertaken formal training in the subject and who wish to update and expand on their current knowledge.
https://rcpsg.ac.uk/travel-medicine/good-practice-guidance-for-providing-a-travel-health-service (page 16) states that after the completion of the 2 days Travel Health Training Course it is essential that it is followed by a period of supervised practice before providing travel consultations, when signing up for this course please bare this in mind.
The 2 day Introduction to travel health course covers the syllabus recommended in appendix C, including covid-19 and travel, risk assessment, travel vaccines, non-vaccine preventable illnesses, malaria, professional issues, and the latest developments in travel health.
When delegates have completed the course, it is recommended that they have a period of supervision in clinical practice whilst they develop their clinical skills and are assessed by their supervising practitioner as competent to undertake a travel consultation.
