Fever in returning travellers
Developed by ISAC's Immunisations & Vaccines Working Group
The course is geared toward healthcare professionals interested in learning more about managing fever in returning travellers. It contains case studies as well as methods of infection prevention including vaccination, vector control and chemoprophylaxis.
With the rapid increase in international travel in recent decades, the possibility of returning travellers bringing back infections has increased substantially. Many infections initially present with fever and it is important for clinicians to be able to differentiate milder conditions from those that could be life-threatening.
This course will help to define travel-related infections and their causes in chapter one, before moving onto discussion of particular infections with case studies in chapter two. Methods of infection prevention including vaccination are discussed in the last chapter.
