Patch Test Interactive
In 2019, we are incorporating a new format into our annual Patch Test Training Day, with discussion of case studies in an interactive scenario. Attendees will workshop clinical cases together and discuss the patch testing process, communication of results and finally patient education. Hopefully this will engender more confidence and knowledge about the patch testing process.
Other topics to be presented in the more traditional lecture format will include workers’ compensation, prosthetic joint allergies, what’s new in contact dermatitis, patient education, preservative allergy and cheilitis.
A session following afternoon tea will be dedicated to those who are ordering allergens from Contact Allergen Bank Australia, and applying patients’ own samples and patches. This will include the basics of patch testing through to more complex issues.
Details about the days topics will be available shortly.
Seats for this event will be limited to dermatologists, registrars and dermatology nurses and we advise registering early to avoid disappointment (seats are limited).
This day is suitable for those who have attended our past training days and those brand new to patch testing.
