New elearning session highlights dermatological side effects of COVID-19
A new session that highlights the effects of COVID-19 on skin has been added to our e-dermatology programme.
Dermatological Presentations of COVID-19 provides an overview of the skin symptoms associated with the virus and how to diagnose them.
The session lists these symptoms as follows:
- Pseudo-chilblain/acral erythema
- Papulo-vesicular eruptions
- Urticarial lesions
- Livedo/vasculitic lesions
The elearning session is aimed at a range of health and care professionals including GPs, nurses, specialty doctors and colleagues treating COVID-19 patients.
On completion of the session, learners will be able to describe the differential diagnoses of the skin symptoms of COVID-19, outline investigations and formulate a management plan.
The session has been developed in by Health Education England and the British Association of Dermatologists. To learn more, please take a look at our e-dermatology programme page.
