APhA’s Pharmacy-Based Travel Health Services (2nd Edition) is an innovative and interactive advanced competency training (ACT) program that explores the pharmacist’s role in providing travel health services to patients. This application-based activity is the first step for pharmacists interested in learning the essential skills necessary to successfully provide travel health services.
Program pre-requisite: Pharmacists who have completed the APhA Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program and received a Certificate of Achievement or have previously completed an immunization training program and are authorized to provide immunizations in the state in which they practice.
- Provide pharmacists with comprehensive knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to establish and deliver a successful travel health service.
- Teach pharmacists to identify at-risk patient populations in need of preventative and travel care.
- Enhance pharmacists’ ability to effectively counsel patients on travel health.
- Motivate increased numbers of pharmacists to establish travel health services
There are two components to the APhA Pharmacy-Based Travel Health Services advanced competency training (ACT) program:
- 6.0 hour (0.60 CEU) web based self-study modules with case studies and assessment exam
- 4.0 hour (0.40 CEU) live seminar with assessment exam
Key Learning Objectives of the Live Seminar
After completing the live seminar, pharmacists will be able to:
- Distinguish the information necessary to obtain from patients to conduct a quality travel health risk assessment.
- Explain elements of a pre-travel consultation in the community pharmacy setting.
- Demonstrate appropriate health risk communication and management for international travelers.
- Select appropriate vaccinations to prevent diseases associated with travel to certain geographic regions.
