Contrary to common belief, prophylactic drugs don't actually prevent malaria—they simply treat the malaria that people travelling to endemic areas are almost certainly going to contract. In this video from our Malaria Mini: The Basics course, we take a look at the common prophylactic medications used, and the critical factors you need to consider, before prescribing these drugs to your travelling patients.
Many clinicians lack the experience and relevant caseload that is necessary to master the treatment of malaria. This course will teach you how to confidently tackle this disease in your clinical practice. You’ll learn about the parasite’s life cycle and epidemiology, how to take a proper travel history, how to prevent, diagnose, and treat infections, and when to refer your patient to an expert, in time to save a life!
