Recommendations for the practice of travel medicine.
Travel Med Infect Dis. 2012 May; 10(3):109-28.TM

Abstract

Travel Medicine has emerged as a distinct entity over the last two decades in response to a very substantial increase in international travel and is now forging its own identity, remit and objectives for care of the traveller. Crucial to the formation of any speciality is the definition of recommendations for its practice. This is particularly important and needed for travel medicine as it overlaps with and forms part of day-to-day work in a number of different medical specialities. This document defines a set of recommendations for the practice of travel medicine from the Faculty of Travel Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Their objective is to help raise standards of practice and achieve greater uniformity in provision of services, better to protect those who travel. As travel medicine moves towards applying for speciality status, these standards will also contribute to that process.
