Outline

Dermatology Nursing

“We don’t save lives – we change lives”

This conference was first delivered in 2018. This current program extends on the original content presented as well as incorporating new content not covered in the first program.

Dermatology is a huge field and, like any other speciality, requires clinicians to hold the specific knowledge to provide the correct diagnosis and treatment options for the patient. This Conference will explore the latest best practice clinical guidelines on the key concepts of Dermatology Nursing.

The content is as relevant to the Nurse working in a Dermatology practice as it is to the Nurse wanting to find out more about Dermatology to use in their general practice and patient education.

 

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore clinical aspects of dermatological conditions and the signs and symptoms commonly associated
  • Investigate the treatment options available for the dermatological conditions discussed
  • Examine the most common dermatological conditions that may present to your service
  • Update your knowledge on the current best practice clinical guidelines

 


Exclusive Online Library:

We have created an exclusive online Conference library website for our attendees to access prior to the commencement of the Conference. The online library is provided to you so that you can create your own Conference experience and access information and sessions of interest prior to the commencement of the Conference program. Library Content Includes:

  • Webinars and their corresponding note pages
  • Self-directed learning activities and
  • Other supporting documents for the face to face presentations

This page will be available to you as an attendee from 4 weeks before we set sail and for 4 weeks post the Conference, should you want to refresh your knowledge.


Presenter

Sharon Hudson

Sharon Hudson is a Registered Nurse with a passion for education, dermatology and clinical research. With past presidential roles in the Australian Dermatology Nurses Association and the International Skincare Nursing Group, she has an exceptional knowledge of clinical dermatology and the information required by Nurses who work within this speciality environment.

Sharon is currently working in dermatology as a clinician but also a Nurse Educator. She is in the process of authoring her first book on dermatology as well as creating a Dermatology Nursing course.

Sharon has a strong commitment to excellence in patient care and a love to inspire and teach her Nursing colleagues.


The Venue:

This exceptional Conference is being held on the P&O Pacific Aria as we cruise the pristine blue seas of the South Pacific where sunshine and smiles meet. You can take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, be welcomed by the locals as you check out the markets and immerse yourself in village life, feel the white sand between your toes and just relax in this laid-back island paradise.

The P&O Pacific Aria has a dedicated conference venue where the conference will be held during the days we are at sea. Travel with your family and friends – while you are attending an exceptional Nursing Conference they can explore the ship and get involved in on board activities. Then each day after the conference sessions you can kick back and relax with them – what a great way to mix your need to keep up to date with best practice Nursing education and spend time with your family and friends in a spectacular location.
