TREC News

Our next 2 day course for those new to travel will be in Glasgow on the 17th and 18th of April.   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.

We are busy looking for a new venue in Edinburgh for our next TREC Further course so as soon as we have found the perfect venue for you, we will send out another newsletter.  We have a couple of venues in mind but if you can recommend any then please let us know.  Our TREC Further day is for those of you that have attended one of our two day courses and attending the day is the ideal way to attend an annual travel update as recommended in the RCN Travel Health Competence Document. 

Excitingly, we are hoping to be to introduce a new 2 day immunisation course for those of you that are new to vaccinating.  It is still in the planning stages so look out for more information in 2019

Not all travel courses are created equal and our TREC two day course very much takes a ‘common sense’ approach to seeing travellers and covers the essential topics that you need to carry out a travel consultation. It is worth mentioning that whilst our speakers have been involved in travel medicine education for many years, they continue to see and advise travellers within travel clinics and bring this practical, hands on approach to the course. Fifteen years after TREC started, we still believe this is a hugely important part of the course and is echoed in the feedback we get from those of you that have attended the course
