0.50 / AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM 0.50 / CE for Nurses
This activity is provided by Haymarket Medical Education (HME) for physician credit. This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and HME for nursing contact hours.
Undertraining in dermatology for primary-care providers is a common phenomenon. Thus, primary-care clinicians need additional educational outlets devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of specific dermatologic conditions. For clinicians out of training, CME becomes the most accessible route.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of primary-care health-care professionals who treat patients with various dermatologic conditions.
After completing the activity, the participant should be better able to:
For Cases #1 and #2
Differentiate between skin manifestations of Spitz nevus and amelanotic melanoma
Demonstrate proficiency in identifying and treating Spitz nevus and amelanotic melanoma
For Cases #3 and #4
Examine the etiology and clinical presentation of acquired digital fibrokeratoma and necrobiosis lipoidica
Formulate diagnostic procedures and treatment protocols for patients presenting with acquired digital fibrokeratoma and necrobiosis lipoidica
