This module will be of interest to experienced practitioners who work with patients with skin conditions, helping them to make informed choices about therapeutic treatment options. Both practitioners, who are independent prescribers and those not yet prescribing independently, will find this module of value. It provides management guidance for common dermatological disease as well as specialist pharmaceutical knowledge of the systemic and topical drug and non-drug interventions used to treat skin disease and wounds. It will focus on patient empowerment so individuals can learn how to self manage skin conditions by maximising effective use of prescribed and non-prescribed treatments.

  • Specialist drug treatments and drugs with special monitoring requirements such as methotrexate and other immunosuppresents e.g. biologics, isotretinoin.
