Nurses in Dermatology practice

The Nurses Course is an opportunity from nurses across Europe to come together for learning and a sharing of views and experiences. This course is the first of its kind and international speakers will deliver lectures on topics such as eczema, phototherapy and skin surgery.  There will be short presentations from attendees on work in their own areas, with a particular focus on the challenges of delivering effective care during the Covid pandemic and the lessons that have been learnt from this.

Learning objectives:

  • To update your knowledge on some common skin diseases 
  • To review different modalities for the treatment of pre-canceroses and non-invasive skin cancers
  • To enjoy the perfect opportunity for exchanging valuable information, sharing experiences, hints and tips for your daily practice

Join us for what promises to be a unique opportunity to share our knowledge and experience. We look forward to seeing you IRL (In Real Life) and not URL (online)!
