RCN and THT Travel Health Roadshow presented by Jane Chiodini

HELLO - this page is just for you!  The content below will be available to you for the next 6 months but please note, it was up to date at the time of the travel health update you attended.  After this time this page will be taken 'down' however, all other pages on the website are always available.  

Over the years, I've enjoyed designing 'tools' and resources for health care professionals to use in their daily practice - created to make the process easier.   When using tools such as vaccine and malaria charts, advice leaflets etc. make sure though that you are always using the latest version. I would ask you to read the copyright and disclaimer statements please.

Resources presented mostly in order of presentation - I may have included some items below I didn't discuss on the day but I hope you enjoyed the session!
