The world is becoming a smaller place through the rapid expansion of the modes of transportation. Over 1 billion people travel each year via plane and substantially more via land and sea. As a consequence of this, international travel holidays are becoming more exotic and travel often more extreme. Advice regarding travel is now a common occurrence in primary care and this module presents typical scenarios relating to questions on vaccination, advice and treatments for a variety of travel-related scenarios.
