This 2 day face-to-face travel health training course is very comprehensive and therefore covers all the core elements for health professionals wishing to deliver a travel health service. In order to do this we have developed the course in line with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Travel Health Competencies and the new Faculty of Travel Medicine (FTM) Travel Health Good Practice Guidelines (RCPSG)

What’s included?

This is this an interactive and engaging face-to-face or webinar travel health training course. Due to the complicated nature of travel health we cover a large amount of subject matter. Therefore the course includes the following modules:

  • Practical provisions of running a Travel Health Service
  • Professional responsibilities for health professionals working in travel health
  • Completing a comprehensive Travel Health Risk Assessment
  • Introduction to the ‘5T’s of Tropical Disease’ and the ‘Travel Vaccine Traffic Light’ tools.
