Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Travel medicine is a relatively new discipline and the founding of the International Society of Travel Medicine (www.istm.org) occurred in the early 1990s. Pharmacist have, in recent years, become increasingly involved in delivering travel medicine services in the community sector. This has evolved in a number of countries where community pharmacists are now providing a travel vaccination service and are running travel clinics to prepare travellers prior to departure. Pharmacists have also become involved in other aspects of travel medicine, such as providing specialist medical kits for travel and expeditions, and in the management of a variety of infectious diseases encountered by travellers.

In this Special Issue of Pharmacy we are seeking, in particular, reviews and case studies that describe the involvement of pharmacists in providing travel medicine services, which might relate to a particular country or region. As such, activities that are linked to general vaccination services provided through pharmacies are of interest. Authors are also invited to submit articles or original research that might relate to medicines or other health-related products used in travel medicine.

The principle aim of this Special Issue is to share good practices amongst pharmacists providing travel medicine services. We hope that this will encourage further involvement of the profession in this growing speciality
