When employees travel internationally, certain challenges present themselves to nursing professionals. This session will address some of the most common recurrent challenges: the traveler leaving on short notice (often one or two days), the need for cost-effective and time-effective ways to prevent rabies and Japanese encephalitis, the dilemma of the ten-day requirement for yellow fever vaccination, and how to maintain currency with constant changes in travel health.
List counseling priorities for employees departing on very short notice.
Describe alternatives to vaccination for the prevention of rabies and JE.
