The promotion of tourism has facilitated the arrival of imported diseases to all parts of the world, making it necessary for nursing professionals to specialize in order to improve patient care" 

The management of infectious pathologies in Emergency Departments is becoming increasingly complex, due to the appearance of new diseases or imported diseases that are not frequent in certain countries, but also because of the resistance that many infections are acquiring to the drugs used to cure them.  

La globalización, el turismo de masas y la posibilidad de llegar a lugares a los que hasta hace unos años era casi imposible imaginar ha ocasionado que enfermedades que estaban circunscritas a determinados países hayan cruzado sus propias fronteras. Por ello, hoy en día es posible diagnosticar a pacientes con infecciones poco frecuentes o que hasta hace poco tiempo ni siquiera existían en determinadas regiones. Estas novedades en el ámbito sanitario hacen necesario que los enfermeros también deban aumentar su capacitación y conocimiento en este tipo de patologías, ya que son los primeros profesionales que se enfrentan a estos pacientes. Por ello, este Postgraduate Diploma tratará en profundidad las principales enfermedades que afectan tanto a los residentes que viajan a lugares exóticos, como a los inmigrantes que se trasladan a otros lugares, poniendo el foco en las enfermedades tropicales, como la 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.
