Fever in returning travellers

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.

Course Aims
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.

Respiratory tract infections and antimicrobial resistance

Respiratory tract infections and antimicrobial resistance

Developed by ISAC's Immunisations & Vaccines Working Group

This course is designed to help healthcare professionals build their understanding of how vaccinations can help to prevent antimicrobial resistance in relation to respiratory tract infections, like pneumonia.

Course Aims
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has highlighted the severe health consequences associated with respiratory tract infection. Pneumonia continues to be a global problem which requires treatment with antimicrobials. However, inappropriate prescribing of antimicrobials for respiratory tract infections can increase the global burden of antimicrobial resistance.

The course explores the causes of respiratory tract infections and the epidemiological effect of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic on RTIs and antimicrobial prescribing. It also explores antimicrobial resistance and diagnostics before discussing the role of vaccines in reducing antimicrobial resistance.
