Gain 5.5 CPD credits by attending

Dermatological problems account for about 15% of GP consultations and are increasing in prevalence among adults and children.Pulse has brought together consultants and specialist GP speakers to guide you through the recent changes in the evidence, update you on the key guidelines and provide you with the latest practical advice on diagnosis, management and referral of a wide range of skin disorders.

New responsibilities in primary care mean that the pressure is on for GPs to reduce referrals and cut costs while maintaining the quality of patient experience. Your referrals will be under scrutiny from consortia in a bid to save time and meet tough efficiency targets. Dermatology is the most common reason for people to consult their doctor with a new health concern. By updating your knowledge of skin conditions and the latest treatments you can reduce unnecessary dermatology referrals.

Keeping your knowledge of dermatology up to date is essential to meet the needs of your patients in primary care and to feel confident about when to refer.

The NHS is changing and the Government has set challenging efficiency targets. The high prevalence of skin problems, together with the pressure to reduce referral rates and keep a lid on prescribing costs, means that the need for effective dermatology care will be more important than ever. You should leave this seminar confident that you have gained a solid clinical knowledge base and armed with practical tips you can put into practice as soon as you return to your surgery.
