GPs and practice nurses are frequently called upon to give medical advice to people taking holidays in places that, until very recently, were visited only by explorers or serious mountaineers, while travel to countries where malaria is endemic is now commonplace. There is at present no widely available short guide to travel medicine that is illustrated in color and is suitable for a wide range of health professionals — this Color Guide fills that gap.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ann M. Shahwan, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is a general overview of areas healthcare professionals should be aware of when counseling patients who are planning to travel. Although it is not comprehensive and greatly detailed, it does cover important general information on travelers' risks, including accidents, medical care overseas, and travelers with pre-existing medical conditions. There is a rather detailed section on malaria that includes helpful maps and diagrams.
Purpose: Written by contributors with degrees in travel medicine, the book deals with prevention and management of illness related to travel. These recommendations are not limited to infectious diseases. Thus, this book is a well-rounded generalized handbook to be used as a guide for healthcare professionals.
Audience: It is written in such a way to be easily understood by physicians, nurses, auxiliary staff, and laypersons. This guide would be most useful for a trainee in travel medicine, such as a nurse practitioner, student, resident, or fellow.
Features: The book contains a generalized overview of issues that need to be addressed with patients planning to travel. Unique features include sections on pregnant women, children, elderly patients, and psychological issues regarding return for expatriates. Although there are several pictures, maps, and graphs that are helpful, some are a bit frivolous.
Assessment: With chapters on travelers with special needs, this guide offers helpful advice both for laypersons preparing to travel and for healthcare professionals who may be caring for them, all in an easy-to-read format.
