The Older Traveller – A guide for the health professional

Eighty is the new sixty. People are ageing more successfully and remain physically and mentally active for longer.

Is 80 the new 60 at your clinic? More people are travelling throughout older age and many health practitioners are looking for guidance on the health needs of travellers over 60.

The Older Traveller – A guide for the health professional provides advice on health issues encountered by older travellers and practical information on how to counsel older persons for travel. Whether travel health is your specialty or not, The Older Traveller gives you the information you need to help your travelling patients plan a healthy trip.
