On Wednesday 27th January evening Dr. Anthony Downs, Consultant Dermatologist, provided a one hour Zoom educational tutorial on common skin problems of the hands and feet for local GPs in Devon & Cornwall.
This is part of an on-going rolling educational program that Ramsay Health in Mount Stuart Hospital, Torquay & Exeter Medical provide for GP education in Devon.
Dr. Downs provides continuous medical education (CPD) for local GPs and is pleased to share his extensive knowledge and expertise on a wide range of dermatological conditions, from the common through to rare conditions. This particular event looked at skin problems and conditions of the hands and feet.
Dr. Downs provided useful practical tips, advice on treatment options for stubborn conditions, whilst ensuring General Practitioners concentrate on getting the right diagnosis, rather than jumping in and just treating the symptoms.
There was also a focus on managing hand eczema that has become far more common now that we are all washing our hands so frequently because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Downs is looking forward to passing on his knowledge and offering further useful advice and guidance for doctors at the next event.
