Please find links to pre-travel handouts for non-English speaking patients. We have made these handouts available in an attempt to improve the quality of travel medicine available to non-English speaking, and VFR (Visiting Friends and Relatives) patients.
Hopefully these handouts will assist you in serving your patients, and ultimately, in decreasing travel related morbidity and mortality. These handouts have been peer-reviewed by travel medicine specialists and translated by bicultural, medically trained, professional interpreters.Although we have done our best to produce an accurate and useful tool please contact Drs. Bill Stauffer and David Boulware with suggestions or corrections.
