This two-day annual course provides participants with an overview of anogenital and oral dermatology, including diagnosis, treatment options, dealing with complications and co morbidities, and the latest research in the field. Throughout the programme clinical based studies will be used to highlight current treatments and to combine theory and clinical practice. The course is aimed at all healthcare professionals (dermatology, gynaecology, GU medicine, oral medicine, GPs, and specialist nurses) who wish to learn more about the diagnosis and management of male and female anogenital and oral dermatological disorders. It will address the importance of multidisciplinary working in the care of these patients.

What the day includes:
It is our belief that every practice should possess a dermatoscope and have at least one doctor adequately trained to safely use it. The main role of Dermoscopy in Primary Care is to help identify benign lesions. The majority of seborrhoeic keratoses, angioma, dermatofibroma and blue naevi can be readily identified with a dermatoscope. This can help reduce referrals / unnecessary skin surgery it might be helpful to have a look at the PCDS website for some pre-course study http://www.pcds.org.uk
The course is suitable for:
As an introductory course it is suitable for those with little or no previous knowledge as well as those for whom the early stages require reinforcement and reassurance. This course is aimed at GPs and VTS registrars primarily but would also be appropriate for specialist nurses involved in skin care. Indeed anyone involved in examin-ing and advising patients about their skin lesions would benefit.
This is not a practical hands-on course
