GPs USE STETHO-, AURO- OPTHALMO-SCOPES BECAUSE THEY HELP IN ESTABLISHING HEALTH OR DISEASE. DERMOSCOPY IS ANOTHER AID TO DIAGNOSIS WHICH WE FEEL AT LEAST ONE MEMBER OF ANY PRACTICE SHOULD BE COMPETENT TO USE

FOR SOME TIME THE PCDS HAS BEEN A LEADING PROPONENT OF DERMOSCOPY  & NICE GUIDANCE NOW RECOMMENDS DERMOSCOPY FOR SUSPICIOUS LESIONS

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO BUY AN INSTRUMENT & EXPECT IT TO BE AN INSTANT EXPERT & WE HAVE BECOME AWARE OF THE NEED FOR TRAINING AT AN INTRODUCTORY LEVEL TO AUGMENT THE MORE ADVANCED EXISTING PCDS COURSES

THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE GPs WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF TYPES OF INSTRUMENTS, WHAT YOU CAN RAPIDLY LEARN TO IMPROVE YOUR DIAGNOSTIC ACCURACY & TO WARN YOU WHEN EXPERT OPINION IS IS NEEDED

THE AIM OF THE TRAINING IS TO TEACH HOW TO SAFELY DIFFERENTIATE THE OBVIOUSLY BENIGN LESIONS, SUCH AS SEBORRHOEIC KERATOSIS,  FROM POSSIBLE CASES OF MELANOMA & THEREBY REDUCE THE LARGE NUMBERS OF SKIN LESIONS THAT ARE REFERRED UNNECESSARILY TO SECONDARY CARE UNDER THE TWO WEEK-RULE
