Programme overview

The annual Clinical Dermatology Care course run by St John’s DermAcademy is aimed at registered nurses or allied healthcare professionals who wish to extend and consolidate their clinical knowledge in the field of dermatology nursing. It will appeal particularly to nurses within the specialty, community / practice nurses, nurse practitioners and nurses who see patients with skin rashes in acute services.

This year we have modified the course to run it via online webinars and streamed lectures. The themed study days are: Patient assessment and overview of dermatology therapeutics, Eczema and psoriasis, Inflammatory skin conditions, Skin cancer, Acute and Emergency dermatology. We will also include a day of practical workshops which will be available face to face if regulations allow and / or via live stream online.
