Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) Pre-Travel Providers’ Rapid Evaluation Portal (Pre-Travel PREP)

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This web page is a free clinical reference tool that helps healthcare professionals give up to date and destination-specific recommendations to patients who are traveling internationally. Developed to act as an interactive Yellow Book (CDC's Health Information for International Travel), Pre-Travel PREP uses an online form to assist clinicians in preparing a U.S. traveler for a safe and healthy international trip. The form asks basic questions about the provider, and uses the traveler's age, sex, destination county, context of travel, and medical problems or conditions to deliver recommendations. These recommendations are meant to be used by the healthcare professional as an adjunct to the management of clinical care.

Pre-Travel PREP is sponsored by the Global TravEpiNet (GTEN) and provides health advice for safe international travel based on the recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
