This course is designed to cover the ‘big ticket’ items in dermatology.
These are the conditions that occur most commonly in general practice, and the ones that dermatologists are asked most questions about. Intended for all levels of experience, the lectures will include both fundamental information and more advanced concepts. Packed with practical advice and the latest innovations, this course will send participants away with knowledge that can be applied on the first day back in the clinic.
The 2-day seminar will commence with some fascinating lectures on gross and microscopic examination of the skin. Veterinarians who have heard this material before have claimed it has changed the way they practice forever. This will be followed by a session on the general approach to pruritus. This will set the scene for the remainder of the course, which focuses on three major themes – infections and infestations, allergy and otitis.
The speakers will guide the participants through all the recent advances in these areas, focussing on the areas that are most relevant to clinical general practice. Examples of questions that will be answered include:
What’s the latest on the treatment of demodicosis?
What does methicillin resistance mean to me and my patients?
Just what exactly is a grass allergy and how should it be managed?
How should I be treating my atopics?
Why will that ear infection not clear up?
This comprehensive course is sure to satisfy the demands of busy practitioners who spend a significant proportion of their time managing skin and ear disorders.
“Great 2 days of dermatology to update knowledge to current best practice.”
Diane Bogaers, Geovet
"This seminar was excellent because the specialists were consistently aware of the difficulties the general practitioner has in dealing with an area that has, and still is, under-estimated for its complexity and challenges."
Ingrid Walker, Kirrawee Veterinary Hospital
