We’re celebrating another of our travel nurses, Johanna, obtaining the acclaimed International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) Certificate of Knowledge.
The ISTM Certificate of Knowledge is an examination that proves an individual has demonstrated expertise in the travel profession and has a solid knowledge of travel medicine care and consultation. We are extremely proud that another of our travel nurses holds a Certificate in Travel HealthTM (CTH®).
The field of travel medicine has grown dramatically over the years. Almost a billion travellers cross International borders annually for both work and leisure. Travel medicine has become increasingly complex due to a number of reasons. Predominantly due to greater numbers of people travelling to remote and exotic destinations. However increased drug resistance, global migration patterns and the rise in travellers with chronic health conditions have also had an impact. However, research worryingly suggests that very few travellers seek pre-travel health advice with a travel expert.
Fleet Street Clinic is one of the UK’s leading providers in travel medicine, vaccinations and travel advice. Knowing another member of the team has obtained this certification in travel health provides greater confidence to the public and the patients we treat that our experience and knowledge is all-around exceptional.
The exam is held in a different location each year. Johanna travelled to Washington DC to take the exam. Whilst there she attended and presented at the preceding 16th Conference of the International Society of Travel Medicine (CISTM16), alongside travel nurse, Anna Chapman.
Congratulations Johanna, from us all at Fleet Street Clinic.
Travel Vaccines are a key component of pre-travel preparation.
