As a junior doctor, you'll be expected to manage common dermatological conditions on your clinic and ward rounds. Attend this morning session to receive practical advice and guidance on common dermatological problems on the wards, often managed by the most junior members of the team in the first instance.

Designed for general practitioners, junior doctors, trainees, clinical medical students and SHOs, this meeting will act as your survival guide for dealing with 'basic' dermatological issues, such as leg ulcers, itchy skin, red, swollen, hot legs and drug rashes.

Topics include:

  • The essentials when dealing with leg ulcers
  • Drug rashes
  • Understanding how to approach the ‘itchy’ patient
  • Approaches to red, swollen, hot legs
  • Practical tips and prescribing for the wards
