Travel Health Specialist Nurse Jane Chiodini has developed an Introduction to Travel Health eLearning course. The study takes a minimum of two full days to study. However, this can be done at a time to suit you, over a period of six weeks.
The Introduction to Travel Health Course follows the curriculum described in the ‘Good Practice Guidance for Providing a Travel Health Service‘ document. This was published in October 2020 from the Faculty of Travel Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The Ten Point Framework of topics for inclusion describing essential training for travel medicine can be
viewed from page 33 of the publication (see the link above).
This e learning course will take you through these topics, and if you choose to explore all the material, it will increase your knowledge further than a two-day face to face training programme would have time for.
The course objectives of the Introduction to Travel Health are to:
- Provide you with a basic knowledge for the key aspects within a travel consultation
- Raise your awareness of the complexity of travel medicine practice
- Increase your confidence to gain control within a travel consultation, whilst recognising the levels of competence required to deliver good care
- Lead you to further tools and resources to use within your practice, thus enhancing your knowledge and learning
The course comprises 15 hours of learning, but you will have 4 weeks in which to complete it.
If you finish before this timescale, you continue to have access to the platform until the date of
The opportunity to ask questions and engage with an online forum to answer your questions is
available, but no online meetings are required for this course – you can study it at your own pace
when it suits you.
There is also a facility to email Jane directly within the platform if you have any queries arising from
the training and will receive a personal email reply back within 3 working days.
A certificate of completion for 8 hours of learning will be issued at the end of the course.
This CPD course is for Practice Nurses and Allied Health Care Professionals. Please check here if you are eligible for these funded courses.
Please note: By applying for any of these training courses, you/your practice will not be able to also claim your £333 allocated CPD funding.
