This session is the first in a series of sessions about travel advice for patients and provides a broad overview of the issues GPs must consider when advising patients before they travel.

This session was reviewed by Khyati Bakhai and last updated in November 2020.

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Perform an individualised risk assessment and communicate the risks to would-be travellers
  • Explain the concepts of risk avoidance, limitation and elimination with reference to travel health
  • Advise travellers when vaccination is mandatory
