Competencies: Travel Health Nursing: career and competence development, RCN guidanceUpdated guidance from RCN has been published
On 3 May 2018 an updated edition of Competencies: Travel Health Nursing: career and competence development was published .This edition has been updated in response to an audit and evaluation survey .
This updated guidance provides information on current guidelines and standards of care of travellers. It builds on the previous editions and defines the standards of care expected for a competent nurse, experienced/proficient nurse and a senior practitioner/expert nurse working in travel health nursing.
These new guidelines reflect:
- the availability of more directional guidance
- increasing resources available to health professionals and the travelling public
- increasing use of technology and social media has changed the delivery of advice.
Direct access to the document is available from Clinic Resources: Standards in Travel Medicine.
