The temptation of Tangalooma is calling on this short CPD cruise


Dermatology Nursing

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

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:

In this conference you will:

  • Explore clinical aspects of dermatological conditions and the signs and symptoms commonly associated
  • Review the medications used in the dermatological conditions discussed
  • Investigate the most common dermatological conditions that may present to your service
  • Update your knowledge on the current best practice clinical guidelines?

The program content is provided by expert Nurse Educators with extensive clinical and education experience. The education content provided in this program meets the same exacting standards as anything offered in an Australian land-based program. What we have done is marry best practice content with a cruise ship holiday to provide you with a Travel CPD experience, where the conference content is as important your need for rest and relaxation. We have taken a holistic approach to Nursing continuing professional development to ensure you get the most out of the education experience.

Like a true Aussie, it’s laid-back, fun and friendly – and that describes the crew, your fellow passengers and the atmosphere onboard. There are so many fabulous choices on offer when it comes to onboard activities, from gorgeous Stage Show, stand-up comics, karaoke in the piano bar to relaxing by the pool or getting pampered at the amazing day spa. If you are into fitness there is a fully equipped gym and a number of fitness tutorials provided by the expert trainers onboard.
