The Returning Traveller is designed to give junior ED clinicians the tools needed to safely manage these patients who attend more often – and more unwell – than we think.
It includes recently-updated clinical guidance on:
- How to approach the febrile traveller in order to assess their risk for the most common tropical infections
- Key examination and investigation findings that help the ED clinician recognise tropically acquired febrile illness
- Clinical guidelines on the management of Ebola, malaria, acute HIV and other tropical infections
- What to do if you suspect a patient in your department has Ebola-virus disease
Fully matched to the RCEM curriculum, this podcast will benefit anyone seeking a refresher on how to recognise, treat and safely manage these easy-to-miss conditions.
