Travel Health Education – What do we provide?

TREC provides introductory courses and updates, designed to meet the needs of health professionals involved in the administration of vaccines and in the growing field of health advice for travellers. The courses are suitable for Doctors, nurses and pharmacists who are new to this area of health care, but also for those wishing to consolidate knowledge.

General Immunisation study days

We also offer general study days designed to refresh immunisation, vaccine and anaphylaxis knowledge, and renew annual CPR skills, in line with the National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training Guidance. These days focus on national schedule vaccines (not childhood or travel immunisations) Our next date will be in 2019.

Training Pharmacists

We are very aware of the increasing part that our pharmacy colleagues play in the provision of travel health care and advice, and they are most welcome to join us on any of our 2 Day Courses.

Course Dates News

Our next 2 day course in Edinburgh is on the 29th and 30th of August. We expect this course to sell out as several places are already booked so early booking is advised.   Our 2 day course is aimed at those new to travel health or wishing to consolidate their existing knowledge and is suitable for nurses, doctors and pharmacists.  The course is very much delivered in a practical, ‘teach you what you need to know’ way, by speakers that have many years experience working in travel clinics and teaching students.  There will be another 2 day course in Edinburgh later in the year and other locations will also hopefully be confirmed soon.
