- : Online
This activity incorporates 15 multiple choice questions with extensive feedback provided to help GPs assess their knowledge and further develop their understanding of health issues related to travel. Questions cover a range of travel destinations, itineraries and different patient backgrounds, and ask about the most appropriate vaccinations as well as other appropriate advice for patients based on their travel health risks and concerns.Relevance to General Practice
Australians take just under a million trips overseas every year. These trips, whether for business, tourism, visiting friends and relatives or for other personal reasons (eg religious reasons) can pose various risks to the person’s health.
All individuals planning travel are advised to seek information on the potential hazards in their chosen destinations and understand how best to protect their health and minimise the risks of accidents and of acquiring diseases. General practitioners (GPs) are well positioned to provide such advice, both for healthy individuals and those with chronic medical conditions.
This activity has therefore been designed to help GPs assess their current knowledge on travel health risks through the use of multiple choice questions and immediate feedback.
