Welcome to our 2011 Travel Medicine conference for Health Professionals.

Travel and Tropical Medicine is a specialization which continues to grow. With around 2 million kiwis travelling internationally each year,  Health Professionals need to be regularly updated in the latest global travel health information.

Prevention of infectious disease remains the priority of travel medicine practice through travel vaccines, medication and awareness and risk assessment of the traveller’s destination and itinerary.

This year’s WORLDWISE ONLINE conference offers Health Professionals a solid platform on which to learn and update knowledge in this fascinating specialization.

Advanced Level 1 – One full day of stimulating  presentations aimed at all Primary Health Care Nurses who have some experience in Travel Medicine practice or Primary Health Care Practitioners new to Travel Medicine. Includes input from 2 international key note speakers


Level 2 – One and a half days of invaluable global health information aimed at all Primary Health care Practitioners (General Practitioners, Travel and Infectious Disease Specialists, Military medical staff and Pharmacists) with an interest in travel medicine.
