161252 - Travel Medicine Alliance 14th Annual Meeting

  • : Online


This meeting will cover a number of important topics in travel medicine. It aims to equip the attending travel medicine practitioners with updated knowledge and skills in the planning of appropriate vaccine schedules and provision of medical first aid supplies for patients; in the diagnosis and management of returning travellers with infectious diseases and to increase knowledge of emerging disease patterns.

Relevance to General Practice

As international diseases change over time, as well as using current travel medicine specific resources for country and region based disease requirements, travel medicine practitioners need to update their knowledge to ensure their patients are receiving up to date advice. This meeting will assist travel medicine practitioners to provide evidence based care to their patients. 
(Refer attached needs assessment for evidence base.)
