This TREC course is recognised by the Royal College of Nursing in their RCN Travel Health Guidelines “Delivering travel health services – RCN guidance for nursing staff”. It is proving to be particularly popular with GPs, practice nurses, treatment room nurses, school nurses and occupational health nurses.

This 2 day course is designed for any health professionals who are involved or interested in the provision of travel health advice and vaccine administration. On most courses we have participants from various fields of health care – practice and treatment room nurses, occupational health nurses, school nurses, medics and GPs. This course is ideal for those who are new to the field of travel medicine, but is also popular with anyone wishing to update and expand their current knowledge.

Our policy is to keep the course numbers to approx. 20 which allows for a relaxed and interactive atmosphere and the opportunity to ask plenty of questions!

The topics covered will include –

  • Risk assessment
  • Principles of immunisation
