This learning plan for healthcare professionals with an interest in dermatology includes modules from the March 2018 issue of MIMS Dermatology, covering oral signs and symptoms of systemic disease, cellulitis, hyperhidrosis treatment and urticaria. Also featured are four interesting patient case studies on verruca, persistent itchy rash, matching lesions in a married couple and skin reaction to topical treatment.
The range of topics covered reflects the knowledge and skills that primary healthcare professionals need when advising patients with skin conditions.
Each educational activity provides a post-test so you can check what you have learned. You can undertake the whole plan or select individual modules to meet your identified learning needs. CPD credits can be claimed on each module.
