Online Course: Travel Medicine Review and Update Course

14th to 15th August 2020, online course.

The International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) produces the North American Travel Medicine Review and Update Course each year. The 2020 Course will be held 14-15 August 2020. Due to the growing COVID-19 outbreak and the increasing concern that large gatherings and travel pose concern for personal and public health, the ISTM Executive Board has decided to change the format for the Course to a virtual course. The curriculum will cover topics relevant to physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals who provide medical care and advice to travellers, expatriates, and migrants. The sessions offered will include principles of immune response, risk assessment, and a travel vaccine overview.

The expert faculty will present topics including:

  • Coronavirus Update
  • adventure travel
  • bites and envenomation
  • cases
  • food and water exposures
  • ill returning travellers
  • risk assessment
  • malaria
  • special travellers
  • vaccines
  • vectors

The care of special groups such as pregnant women, pediatric travellers, immigrants, VFR travellers, diabetics, and immunocompromised hosts will also be discussed.
