Highly trained nurses will have greater opportunities to provide quality care to their patients. Don't think twice and expand your skills with us"

As in most specialties, in the case of infectious pathology, the performance of the nurse in the Emergency Department is sometimes complex and, on many occasions, decisive in the course of the disease. Therefore, the importance of a quality specialization in this field is absolutely necessary in order to be up to date with the main developments in the field. 

In addition, it is necessary to take into account that, on numerous occasions, nurses must face pathologies that they had not seen before. This is especially true for imported infectious diseases which, by their very nature, do not develop naturally in all parts of the world. However, human mobility, favored by better transport conditions and mass tourism, means that health care workers, regardless of the country in which they work, may encounter patients with these pathologies. 

This Postgraduate Certificate deals in depth with the professional's actions in relation to infectious diseases in Emergency Departments from the point of view of early diagnosis and treatment, often empirical, but it will also include an update on imported pathology, especially in those entities that require urgent action and/or present a potential transmission capacity in our environment. 

And, of course, the focus is on the main diseases affecting both residents traveling to exotic places and immigrants moving to other places, with a focus on tropical diseases such as malaria.

On the other hand, being a 100% online training, the professional will have the ability to decide when and from where to study, without commitments or obligations, thus being able to combine their study time with the rest of their daily obligations.
