The ABCs of Going Overseas: The process for pre-travel consults - Caroline Nash & Danielle Peel
Australian’s are avid travellers with over 10 million overseas trips per year. Some of our most popular travel destinations are to developing countries where serious infectious diseases are endemic. Nearly 60% of overseas trips are to countries ‘at-risk’ of travel related disease and only 51% of patients seek pre-travel health information. As such there is a need to be pro-active with pre-travel health advice to ensure that all of our travellers are well informed and prepared for the risks they will face. This interactive session aims to provide the attendees with a process that will ensure that their patients are fully prepared for their upcoming trip. A role play session followed by a case based interactive session will help demonstrate how to implement the process and how to tackle more difficult scenarios.
