Care of the international traveller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Managing the health of our globetrotting population is a challenging yet fascinating aspect of general practice. Overseas travellers may return from journeys with symptoms as exotic and unheard of as their far-flung destinations. Pre-travel health can also be a mystery as this tends to fall under the remit of practice nurses in most surgeries. Yet, GPs are expected to have at least some knowledge of travel health, particularly in our increasingly globalized world.
