Leading Skin Experts Back Free new CPD - 'Scratching The Surface' - to Upskill Primary Care Practitioners in Dermatology

PRINCES RISBOROUGH, England, November 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

New online resource launched today for sun induced skin lesions management

With up to 25% of consultations in Primary Care being skin related, dermatology represents a large part of the working life of most healthcare professionals.[1] To help keep skills fresh and provide educational support where needed, skin experts have partnered with LEO Pharma, a leading specialist dermatology company to develop a new online CPD resource, 'Scratching the Surface' (STS).

Highlighting the need for initiatives such as STS that provide education in dermatology, Charlotte Fionda, Development Director, Skcin, the UK's only national skin cancer specific charity commented, "With over a third of all cancers in the UK being skin cancers there is a real need for GPs to be upskilled in lesion recognition and to take early action to prevent the development of the disease."

"With increasing pressure on resources and the challenges faced by service redesign and commissioning, optimal referral management in dermatology is crucial. By supporting lesion recognition and management, STS may help to guide more appropriate referrals," added Consultant Dermatologist Dr Jonathan Bowling, Oxford.

Adrian Heagerty, Consultant Dermatologist, Solihull, who was a founding member of the project team commented, "We wanted to make STS an innovative practical tool that really encompasses holistic management and offers practical day to day advice using different media, including videos interactive elements, and of course lots of pictures which are key in dermatology education. The Visual Glossary, for example, is a really useful feature that can be left open on the users' desk top to refer to."

"Another innovation in STS is the use of images and commentary that show how sun induced skin lesions appear through a dermatoscope which can only help increase knowledge and understanding" added Dr Bowling.

After wide consultation STS has been structured to support interactive learning. "Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is central to STS; each section has clear learning objectives; reflection and personal action planning for improving patient care are included as separate CPD routes for doctors, nurses and pharmacists," commented Julie Van Onselen, Dermatology Nurse Specialist a key member the team who developed the resource.

Geraldine Murphy, Managing Director, LEO Pharma added, "At LEO we are passionate about education in dermatology so we are delighted to have developed the 'Scratching the Surface' (STS) online CPD resource. Our mission as an organisation is to help people achieve healthy skin and I am confident that STS will help achieve that goal."

Access to STS is free and the web based resource is mobile enabled so may be viewed on desktop as well as mobile devices such as tablets, iPad and iPhone. To register online go to http://www.learnwithscratchingthesurface.com

STS also features a module on psoriasis management from LEO Dermatology.
