Dermatology Nursing Conference

Dermatology is a huge field and, like any other speciality, requires clinicians to hold the specific knowledge to provide the correct diagnosis and treatment options for the patient. This Conference will explore the latest best practice clinical guidelines on the key concepts of Dermatology Nursing.

The content is as relevant to the Nurse working in a Dermatology practice as it is to the Nurse wanting to find out more about Dermatology to use in their general practice and patient education.
