CPD podcast: Zika virus, malaria and mosquito bites

In the first in C+D's series of monthly CPD podcasts, Dr Richard Dawood teaches you how to prevent mosquito bites, why malaria prophylaxis varies around the world, and why the Zika Virus is so problematic. 

Community pharmacists are often the first port of call for patients wanting to know more about travel health – so keeping your knowledge up to date is essential.

In this podcast, travel health expert Dr Richard Dawood is on hand to make sure you're aware of the latest best practice on everything from mosquito bites to the Zika virus.

Last year, over 2,500 pharmacy professionals fulfilled their CPD through Update Plus. Find out more at Update Plus.
