Abstract

[Extract] The continuing importance of travel medicine in general practice has been recognised by The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) with the periodic dedication of one unit of its long-running Check Independent Learning Program (formerly Check Program of Self-Assessment) to the subject of travel medicine. The Check Independent Learning Program for General Practitioners (GPs) is a continuing medical education (CME) aid using evolving clinical cases. The last unit dedicated to travel medicine was in 2004 and has been reviewed elsewhere.1 The 2011 Travel Medicine Check Unit covers eight topical cases, which will be of interest to general practitioners and travel health advisers. The 2011 Travel Medicine Check Unit has a table of contents, a "from the editor" written by the Medical Editor (Catherine Dodgshun), eight cases and associated questions, detailed answers overleaf of the relevant questions, a listing of resources and 10 questions to be completed for credit towards the RACGP CME program. There is no named foreword, preface, introduction, list of figures or photographs, references, bibliography, or index.
