Understanding and Managing Skin Lesions in Primary Care

Overview: Skin lesion diagnosis and management forms a core component of the General Practitioner’s workload. Many GPs however, feel under-skilled in this domain, partly through a lack of specific training allied to an understandable concern that dangerous lesions are not missed. This may lead to unnecessary referrals and increased patient anxiety.

Learning outcome: This recorded webinar takes a systematic look at all common presentations of skin lesions to Primary Care and provides a structure to aid clinical decision making, including when and how to refer. Therapeutic options will be discussed and an introduction to Dermoscopy is included. Participants will feel increased confidence and competence at dealing with these challenging cases.
