Hair and scalp disorders: a video module (1 CPD hour)

Consultant dermatologist Dr Paul Farrant presents on a variety of hair and scalp disorders.

Learning objectives


This module will provide GPs with advice on dealing with hair and scalp problems, including:

  • Differentiating between scarring and non-scarring patterns of hair loss
  • Management for men and women with non-scarring, localised hair loss
  • Treating scalp psoriasis effectively
  • Hormonal contraceptives and hair loss

In this module, you will watch Dr Paul Farrant deliver a presentation covering the above topics. This video was recorded at a Pulse Clinical Seminar which took place in March 2012.

The powerpoint slides will cycle through automatically as the video plays, but if you are interested in a particular aspect of the presentation, use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen to navigate through the slides, simply click on the slide you are interested in and you will be taken to the relevant part of the video.

After viewing the video, you will complete a multiple-choice assessment to test the knowledge you have gained. You will then have the opportunity to record your personal learning points and claim your CPD credits, which will be recorded on a certificate stored automatically in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
