Abstract

Risk assessment is an integral part of the pre-travel, during during-travel, and post-travel health consultation. Risk assessment largely determines what health and safety advice and interventions are recommended within the relevant prevailing travel health guidelines. Risk assessment requires time and depends on the available evidence as well as and also information, including that given by the traveller. Risk assessment may be assisted by access to online databases and the published literature. Risk assessment of the traveller preferably starts before they enter the consulting room, where travellers may be asked to complete a pre-travel health questionnaire.
