Dermatology elearning sessions now updated

Posted on: February 8th, 2022 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) to update 17 existing sessions within the e-dermatology elearning programme.

The updated sessions, which cover a range of dermatological issues such as dermatopathology, genital disorders, contact dermatitis and inflammatory dermatoses, now include further resources about skin of colour and updated information from the field of dermatology, including mapping to the new curriculum.

Each session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and learners will gain a greater understanding and specialist training in dermatology from accessing the resources.

e-dermatology launched in 2010 and features 160 sessions covering a range of key topic areas. Since 2017, there have been up to 35,000 session launches per year with elearning on psoriasis, eczema, melanoma and other skin cancers particularly popular with learners.

A new session that highlights the effects of COVID-19 on skin has been added to Health Education England elearning for healthcare’s (HEE elfh) e-dermatology programme.

Dermatological Presentations of COVID-19 provides an overview of the skin symptoms associated with the virus and how to diagnose them.

The session lists these symptoms as follows:

  • Pseudo-chilblain/acral erythema
  • Papulo-vesicular eruptions
  • Urticarial lesions
  • Livedo/vasculitic lesions

The elearning session is aimed at a range of health and care professionals including GPs, nurses, specialty doctors and colleagues treating COVID-19 patients.

On completion of the session, learners will be able to describe the differential diagnoses of the skin symptoms of COVID-19, outline investigations and formulate a management plan.

The session has been developed in partnership with the British Association of Dermatologists. For more information and to access the resource, please visit the e-dermatology programme page.
