CDC health information for international travel 2014 : the yellow book( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health risks are real and ever-changing, especially while traveling abroad. To stay abreast of the most up-to-date health recommendations, experienced travelers and health care professionals use this book (commonly known as the The Yellow Book). Updated biennially by a team of almost two hundred experts-including both CDC staff and travel medicine experts--this publication that contains all of the official government recommendations for international travel. Clearly written and featuring full-color illustrations, the book provides easy-to-read disease risk maps, information on where to find health care during travel, advice for those traveling with infants and children, a comprehensive catalog of diseases, detailed country-specific information, and itineraries for several popular tourist destinations. For example, the section on the Caribbean lays out the recommended immunizations and examines specific health risks for travelers to the region, ranging from malaria to dengue, yellow fever, and traveler's diarrhea. But the book goes beyond the risk of disease to discuss dangers such as violent crime-fortunately, not a great danger to tourists in the area-and also to remind travelers that the single greatest cause of injury death among visitors are traffic accidents. The section on the Caribbean also notes hurricane season and outlines the risks involved in snorkeling, diving, and other water activities common to the area. Every facet of the previous edition has been revisited and revised where necessary, including country-by-country immunization suggestions and new drug information. For the primary care clinician, the specialized travel medicine clinician, or the avid or first-time international traveler

Trends in adults receiving a recommendation for exercise or other physical activity from a physician or other health professional by Patricia M Barnes( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research points to the benefits of physical activity for reducing the risk of chronic health conditions (1-4). Engaging in regular physical activity can reduce medication dependence, help maintain functional independence, and improve the quality of life for older adults (5,6). Physicians and other health professionals can be influential sources of health information, and exercise counseling by primary care physicians has been shown to increase patients' participation in physical activity (6-9). This report examines trends in the prevalence of U.S. adults receiving a physician's or other health professional's advice to exercise or perform other physical activity among adults who had seen a health professional in the past 12 months
