A number of resources may be used in the provision of travel health advice and preventive measures. Information concerning the risks of a traveler’s destination and any specific requirements for travel health advice may be obtained from a variety of information resources. These resources may include various published national and international guidelines, other publications, audiovisual aids, and computerized databases.Regardless of the type of resource, it is important that the information provided is comprehensive, up-to-date, easy to access and use, and, preferably, professionally validated. Other resources used may also includes yellow fever site licensing, as well as practice staff. Referral may also be used in the practice of travel medicine. These resources should be used in conjunction with appropriate training and continuing education in travel medicine.
