What you always wanted to know about skin but were afraid to ask! 


Leading dermatologists and skin care experts will provide training and education on how to diagnose and how to treat and manage common skin complaints.


Following the success of the 2017 Skin Health Education Day, this special one-day event will again run in 2018. The program will cover a range of questions commonly encountered by healthcare professionals, beauticians and the general public. 


This one-day education program will be led by Assoc. Professor Rosemary Nixon. 


Who can attend the Skin Health Education Day? 


The Skin Health Education Day will be suitable for a diverse audience, including:


  • GPs
  • GP registrars
  • Dermatology nurses
  • GP nurses
  • Community health nurses
  • Maternal and child health nurses
  • School health nurses
  • Dermatology registrars 


Each of the sessions delivered on the day will also be suitable for members of the public with skin health concerns or a general interest in skin health.


The day will give attendees a stronger understanding of a wide range of common skin conditions and concerns, whether they be new mothers or highly-experienced GPs. 


What will be covered at the Skin Health Education Day? 


Topics covered at the Skin Health Education Day will include:


  • Acne
  • Ageing skin: Does hormone replacement therapy have a role?
  • Babies and kids: Common skin complaints
  • Contact allergies
  • Cosmetic procedures: An overview of laser, fillers, and botox
  • Diet and the skin
  • Eczema
  • Food allergies and the skin
  • Hair conditions
  • Skin cancer: An overview
  • Skincare: What really works?
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Sunscreen explained
  • Tinea and thrush
  • Treating sun-damaged skin
  • UV and vitamin D: What you need to know
  • When should I be worried about this spot, doctor?
  • Urticaria 


Attendees can choose to participate in as many sessions as they like - the day will be structured so that there will be plenty of time to move from one session to the next.


All sessions at the Skin Health Education Day will be delivered by dermatologists and dermatology nurses. Following each presentation, attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions. Representatives from a range of skincare companies will also be available to speak to attendees on the day. 


Attendees will receive a full-colour reference book, which will include information delivered at every session throughout the event.


Health professionals and beauty therapists face questions about skin health and skincare on a regular basis, so the Skin Health Education Day is expected to sell out quickly. Numbers are limited for this event, so register early to avoid disappointment.
