One Day Essentials | Dermatology

One Day Essentials is a series of one day online conferences – broadcast live - providing expert specialist clinical training and essential information. These conferences are recorded live and the sessions will be available for delegates to access freely for six months from the webinar date.  

Join us on Tuesday 9 March 2021 for a one day interactive online conference led by experts in the field. You’ll learn practical tips to help you improve practice and patient outcomes.

This year's conference focuses on improving dermatological practice. Rather than covering a series of individual diagnoses, this year we are covering broader areas including over-the-counter therapies, legality of patient image use, as well as specific clinic presentations including blistering eruptions, acneiform rashes and rashes in the neonatal period. We will also discuss how to approach drug rashes in primary care. Building on the overwhelming positive feedback from last year's ODE and this year's Essentials Webinar Series, we will keep the information relevant to general practice, relevant to current practice and delivered in an engaging and informative way by expert speakers who have both specialist knowledge and experience of primary care or of teaching for primary care. Dr Ahmed Kazmi returns as our chair and moderator. 

Presentations will address the viability of remote consultations and provide guidance on how to best diagnose and treat patients in a socially distanced world.
