Develop a logical approach to disease investigation and management of a range of complex dermatological cases, particularly immune-mediated and systemic diseases. Skin problems are among the most common reasons for presentation in general practice. The CVE Dermatology Distance Education program is a modular course that aims to provide you with the practical skills necessary to work-up and resolve these often recurrent cases with minimal frustration for both owner and clinician. The ‘Advanced Dermatology’ course covers diseases which may at times be more difficult to recognise and for which there is often a lack of practical information in textbooks and readily available literature. The diseases covered are not as common as allergies and infections but can be more life-threatening and often require uncommon treatments. The diseases include immune-mediated skin disease, scaling diseases, non-inflammatory alopecia and cutaneous signs of systemic disease. While much of the emphasis is on developing a logical approach to case management, this course reviews the latest information available on a wide range of conditions and presents the latest evidence-based treatment options available. Ultimately, having more confidence in your abilities to manage skin patients will lead to higher job satisfaction as well as improving patient outcomes. Prerequisite: Completing either the Pruritic and/or Infectious Skin Disease Distance Education course is a prerequisite for enrolling in the Advanced Dermatology Distance Education course.
