Travel Medicine and Infectious Diseases – 4 Hours

$20.00

Description

In recent years, international travel has become more frequent. Pharmacists need to be up-to-date on the latest travel health information. Medications and non-pharmacologic therapies are available to reduce the risk of infectious diseases while traveling abroad. Community pharmacists may be the last resource for medication information and counseling before travel. Therefore, they may be asked for recommendations regarding medications and over-the-counter products to prevent travel-related illnesses, such as traveler’s diarrhea, cholera, typhoid fever, malaria, and Zika.

Upon completion of this course (Travel Medicine and Infectious Diseases), pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to: 

  • Recognize the difference between routine, required, and recommended vaccines.
  • List the vaccines for preventable diseases and their respective vaccines.
  • List the three types of travel health notices.
  • List the steps necessary to prevent and treat travelers’ diarrhea.
  • Counsel the traveler on obtaining the appropriate travel health and medical evacuation insurance.
  • Recommend mosquito, rabies, and tick prevention techniques.
  • List the specific infectious diseases, including information on the signs and symptoms of the disease, who is at risk for contracting the infectious disease, and specific prevention tips.
  • Advise a pregnant female on various safety methods for preventing infectious diseases related to foreign travel.
  • Assess a traveler who has returned to the United States and presents with a fever, diarrhea, dermatologic changes, or other related symptoms that may be correlated with travel-related infectious diseases.
  • List the recommendations for screening asymptomatic returning travelers.
