A Diagnostic Journey


Friday 18 May 2018


Quality Hotel

Mermaid Waters, QLD


The patch testing team from the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc has put together the brand new program for the 5th Annual Patch Test Training Day titled, A Diagnostic Journey


The program will again be practical and hands on. Attendees will be educated on all aspects of assessing a patient with suspected contact dermatitis: from taking a patient history, selecting which allergens to test in different clinical scenarios, performing readings, and finally making a diagnosis. Videos of the Foundation patch test clinics will be used to highlight these practical aspects of patch testing.  

The day is suitable for dermatology nurses, registrars and dermatologists, including those who have attended our previous training days and also those new to patch testing.
