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 must 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.

The goals of this program are to:

  • 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.
  • Select appropriate prescription, over-the-counter, and ancillary prophylactic and therapeutic products related to travel health.
