       How to prepare for Travel Medicine post-Covid

"We are all aware of that the impact of Covid infections has had on travel and continues to do. With the advent of vaccination programs and sophisticated testing and recording systems in place travel is starting to increase.

However the types of travel such as short haul continues to expand according to the determination of national governments whilst long haul remains dormant. The traveller groups have changed and the emphasis on routine vaccinations being sought by first time travellers going to exotic destinations has shifted to business and essential workers.

With this in mind the marketing of any specific travel medicine services will need to understand these changes. Following lockdowns and extended restrictions many travellers are now attempting to visit families and friends (VFRs) who they have only seen through video links. These VFRs will be a key target group during the revival of travel medicine demands and services.

A key part of the practitioners will be the flexibility to react to short time departures and supply necessary vaccines and medication where required. This parallels with the quick turn around that Covid tests are required for entry into another country before departure from the UK. It seems that a mix of PCR and rapid antigen tests are required within a range of departure times from 24 to 96 hours before departure.

The underlying point here is that this increased cost needs to be allowed for during any travel consultation and also the returning costs of testing and/or isolation. It is unlikely that these costs will be removed in the short term and certainly Covid will become another disease to be routinely covered during a travel medicine risk assessment."


Nurses and pharmacists together improving patient care

Posted on February 23, 2015 at 11:45 AM

The recent comment about Travel Health being an opportunity for partnership is realistic and shows the nurse/pharmacist interface is being maintained with a better result for the patient.

I work as a Travel Health Pharmacist in a private clinic with a team of nurses. I learn from them the practical knowledge of intra-dermal vaccinations and blood taking: whilst I impart my knowledge with them of the pharmacology and bio-kinetics of drug management. 

The resultant output is a high level of information to the patient. Additionally many community pharmacists bring knowledge of commercial reality into into the equation, the ability to sell the additional items such as bite protection products and treatments for travellers diarrhoa etc

This is a short resume of a longer list-butultimately patient care,medecines optimisation etc are shown to benefit the patient
