Inflammatory Skin Diseases Workshop

Saturday, 24 November 2018      

 

A one-day interactive workshop for GPs to review their skills in the examination, diagnosis and management of inflammatory disorders commonly seen in general practice.

Developed and presented by specialist Dermatologists for GPs and GP registrars. Coordinated and facilitated by Associate Professor Alvin Chong, Consultant Dermatologist and Senior Lecturer in Dermatology at the University of Melbourne. A/Prof Chong is also Victorian Censor for the Australasian College of Dermatologists.

This workshop is highly interactive and combines lectures with small group discussions and ‘live-patient’ case scenarios. It will provide you with increased confidence in:
1. Developing an outlined clinical approach to identifying common inflammatory skin conditions and their differential diagnosis
2. Identifying potential errors in diagnosis and how to avoid these
3. Choosing appropriate investigations/biopsies useful for confirming disease
4. Formulating/outlining appropriate management plans
5. Identifying potential complications from prolonged topical steroid use and how to avoid these
6. Implement appropriate resources to support patients with significant and debilitating inflammatory skin conditions, and
7. Knowing when to refer for specialist care.


Diseases and topics covered will include:
• Eczema and psoriasis
• Acne and rosacea
• Alopecia areata and vitiligo
• Lichen planus and other inflammatory diseases
• Principles of topical therapy.
