'Getting to Grips...' online events and video guides

Online guides and webinar sessions for health professionals interested in travel health

NaTHNaC introduced live webinars in 2018 to discuss the dilemmas posed by some common clinical queries to the NaTHNaC Health Professional Advice Line. By 2021, the clinical team were hosting regular lunchtime sessions on Zoom to help Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres with travel health issues.

From 2024, this has been opened up to all health professionals interested in travel health. Whether it be discussing our recent website updates such as our news items, factsheets or country information page disease and vaccination changes, or clinical scenarios from our advice line, we hope to bring our work to life and enable you to make better use of our resources, in your practice.

These events will be live but also recorded and made available on this page. Transcripts available upon request.

Below you will find 'Getting to Grips...' video guides on topics and online event recordings will follow after each session.
