A137 Dermatological conditions in the older adult
Most dermatological conditions occur in all age groups; however, certain skin problems are more commonly seen in the elderly. To provide quality, safe care, practitioners who work with this patient population must be aware of what these conditions are, how they present, possible differential diagnoses and best treatment regimes. This confidence building course aims to help community based qualified health care providers meet these challenges within an evidence-based context.
