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
• Principles of topical therapy.


  • Great practical course! Recommend it to all GPs. (Dr R.B.)
  • A day of worthwhile learning diagnosing and managing extremely common problems in general practice. (Dr P.G.)
  • Time well spent with experts in the field discussion common skin conditions seen in General Practice. Seeing patients with these conditions was definitely a bonus. I would highly recommend attending these workshops. (Dr M.P.)
