The pharmacist is in a unique position to help patients traveling abroad fully prepare by providing health risk information and recommending appropriate immunizations, medications, and over the counter products. The regulations regarding travel health services within a pharmacy are well established, it is now time to start the implementation and operation of a pharmacy-based travel clinic. Pharmacists seeking to implement travel health services need to seek out appropriate resources for training, workflow and logistical considerations, and travel health-specific resources to optimally provide this service. This program will assist pharmacists in expanding their knowledge and skills related to implementing and providing services to patients traveling internationally.
At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the concept and practice of travel medicine and pre-travel health
- Describe regulations regarding travel health services within pharmacist scope of practice
- Create a plan for implementing a practice in travel medicine including protocol, policy and procedures, and methods of compensation
