Travel Health Update For Practice Nurses
This 1-day course is for all practice nurses looking for an update in this area of general practice
Health is constantly changing and disease outbreaks do happen. It is vital therefore that healthcare professionals who provide a travel health service feel equipped to be able to offer the best advice to travellers, as well as being able to signpost themselves and travellers to the latest guidelines.
- The role of the nurse in travel health
- Resource signposting
- Risk Assessment
- International Health Regulations
- Travel vaccinations
- Travellers’ diarrhoea
- Yellow Fever
The RCN have published 2018 updated guidance on “the current guidelines and standard of care of travellers”.
