Best Practice in Nursing Conference – Travel health workshop

HELLO – this page is for you.  If you attended the workshop held on Thursday 19th October at the BPiN conference at the NEC then the links on this page will make sense as I will have mentioned many of them in the presentation!  The content below will be available to you until the end February 2018.  Please note, it was up to date at the time of the workshop, however things may have changed since that time so refer to other resources as well, for example NaTHNaC and TRAVAXAfter February 2018 this page will be taken ‘down’ but, 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.
