New to travel health course

Jane Chiodini - Travel Health Specialist Nurse
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

Travel Health is a complex field of practice, travellers are visiting further afield and undertaking increasingly adventurous activities. The practice of travel medicine is predominantly undertaken by Practice Nurses in Primary Care settings. Training is essential and this two day course is designed to prepare you in the foundations of the subject. This course would also be suitable for healthcare professionals who plan to undertake travel health in settings other than primary care. Led by Jane Chiodini* the course is held with a gap between the two days, allowing you time to put some of the learning into practice, then return for more teaching, but also consolidate day one and discuss any issues that you have.

Please note: course attendees will be provided with some personal learning tasks which is recommended to be undertaken between the two one day courses. This work would comprise approximately 4-6 hours of learning time but is optional.

It is also advised to review the short e learning module (item no. 2 below) which will take approximately 30 minutes (or longer if you want to browse all the resources).
