Program Information

Description

International travel, though often a rewarding experience, carries various risks, such as exposure to infectious diseases, unsanitary conditions, and unsafe vehicles. Just as a traveler fills a suitcase with both necessary and helpful items to use abroad, the consultant provides the traveler with immunizations, medications, and knowledge to carry with them. This presentation will review resources to help providers prepare for such a visit and what questions to ask the traveler at intake. It will also detail required, recommended, and routine vaccinations for travel abroad.

Intended Audience

  • Advanced Practice Clinician
  • Health Educator
  • Mental Health Professional
  • Nurse
  • Physician

Learning Objectives

The participants should be able to:

  1. Differentiate between required, recommended, and routine immunizations for international travelers.
  2. Discuss appropriate use of over-the-counter and prescription medications for prevention and self-treatment of illness while abroad. 
  3. Describe how to integrate counseling points on safety, security, injury avoidance, and other special considerations into the greater pre-travel consultation.
