15 June – 12 July 2021 | 10 CPD points
In this course Dr Linda Vogelnest will focus on maximising yield from skin and ear canal sampling, to enable targeted and effective treatment plans for otitis and inflammatory, or infectious skin diseases.
Optimal sample collection and processing techniques will be detailed, together with basic principles of when different tests are indicated. Accurate interpretation of samples will be an important focus, with a wide range of cytology images provided that become a valuable clinical resource. Optimal treatment choices, based on cytology findings, will be outlined for otitis and common secondary and primary skin infections.
Finally, a series of cases will be presented to reinforce the material covered. Participants will be encouraged to practice skin cytology and culture techniques on their own cases throughout the course, and can present findings to the tutor for evaluation and/or to the group for discussion.
