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.
  • Describe one method for maintaining up-to-date knowledge and skills in travel health.
