Online Dermoscopy Education

Photo from Jan Antonin Kolar
From Thursday 20 January through Thursday 30 July

Do you want to improve your management of skin lesions? Are you aware that your practice has a dermatoscope but you haven’t had the training to use it?

If so, we’re sure you’ll be pleased to hear that: in 2022, there will be two further blocks of dermoscopy training delivered by Dr. Chin Whybrew, an experienced GP with a passion for primary care dermatology, and dermoscopy in particular.

These sessions are FREE to attend and open to any primary care clinician who assesses skin lesions. You are welcome to attend any session more than once, but please note that each course consists of three half-day sessions, and it is important that you attend them in order unless you have participated in dermoscopy training before.

For those clinicians who have attended the course previously, you are very welcome to do so again, but there is a “refresher session” available.

For more information, please expand the boxes below.

Online Dermoscopy for Beginners Part 1
  • How dermoscopy works and practical tips, including how to get good dermoscopy photos and troubleshooting tips
  • A practical demonstration of the Heine DELTAone, including how to turn it on, focus it, charge it, clean it, etc.
  • Interpretation of dermoscopic structures in benign lesions (seb K, angiomas, warts, dermatofibromas, sebaceous hyperplasia, comedones), BCCs and melanomas (and how this always needs to be taken in clinical context)
  • How to put it all together into a simple algorithm
  • Other uses of dermoscopy in primary care

Dates:

Thursday 20 January | 14.00 – 17.30
Thursday 7 April | 14.00 – 17.30

Online Dermoscopy for Beginners Part 2

This is a follow-up session from Part 1, and we recommend you get used to handling the scope for several weeks in between sessions.

  • Recap of how to use the scope, benign lesions, and BCCs
  • Actinic keratosis, Bowens, and SCC
  • Special sites – palms and soles, faces
  • More about naevi and melanomas
  • More BCCs including pigmented and superficial BCCs

Dates:

Thursday 10 February | 14.00 – 17.30
Thursday 26 May | 14.00 – 17.30

Online Dermoscopy for Not-So-Beginners Part 3

This is aimed at people who are reasonably confident using a dermatoscope and have done the first two parts of the three-part course.

  • Troubleshooting tips, and photography techniques
  • Recap of commonly-seen lesions in primary care
  • The “chaos and clues” algorithm for pigmented lesions
  • “Prediction without pigment” for non-pigmented lesions

Dates:

Thursday 24 March | 14.00 – 17.30
Thursday 30 June | 14.00 – 17.30

Dermoscopy Refresher

For anyone who has completed the three-part course, this is a short session of interactive quizzes, top tips, and troubleshooting, and an opportunity to ask any outstanding questions you may have.

It will be mostly case-based, with lots of opportunity for discussion.

Dates:

Wednesday 6 April | 19.00 – 20.30
Further dates TBC

                  • Open to advanced clinical practitioners

                  The world of advanced practice is undergoing dramatic shifts, both locally and nationally; but that doesn’t mean you can’t soar!

                  To support practices with these changes, BNSSG Training Hub’s ACP Lead and chair of The ACP Forum, Kerri Magnus, will be running PCN Advanced Practice Leads Meetings monthly.

                  These meetings will focus on strategic issues, such as funding and career pathways, acting as a portal through which to disseminate new information and updates around advanced practice. They will also support attendees in developing as leaders, providing an opportunity to discuss support needed.

                  Attendees should be:

                  • Advanced practitioners willing to circulate information to the rest of the advanced practice workforce in their PCN
                  • Able to attend monthly meetings

                  Meetings will be held on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 11.00 – 12.00. The first will be on Wednesday 10 November, to discuss the new radiological protocol for first contact, enhanced, and advanced practitioners, and provide an introduction to the Health Education England (HEE) Advanced Practice Demand Survey, due to come around in March 2022.

                  The next of BNSSG Training Hub’s GP Buddy Meetings is this Wednesday 24 November, from 20.00 – 21.00. These meetings, arranged by one of the Hub’s GP Fellows, Dr. Pamela Curtis, offer a safe space for GPs returning to work after a short career break (due to parental leave, ill health, or caring responsibilities).

                  This is an opportunity in which to discuss the things that matter to you – be it clinical work, career goals, or your personal well-being – and in a format of your choosing (as a ‘study group, via action learning sets, etc.). Increase your confidence, and support colleagues in a similar boat.

                  Is remote consulting compatible with personalised care or does something have to give?

                  In a new report commissioned by the NHS Personalised Care Institute, and conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West (NIHR ARC West) and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC), the relationship between personalised care and remote consulting is examined. Both are at the forefront of NHS England’s agenda, but the distance between clinician and patient afforded by remote consulting is not necessarily conducive to creating health plans jointly them.

                  In addressing this potential conflict, researchers sought to answer the following questions:

                  • How does remote consultation affect access to healthcare and quality of care?
                  • Is remote healthcare as good as face-to-face?
                  • When are remote consultations not suitable?
                  • Can personalised care be delivered remotely?

                  In short, the report concludes that remote consultations are not inherently good or bad, with their effectivity being dependent on the patient’s needs, life stage, and finances. Health professionals are advised to think carefully about how to use remote consultations, and for what purpose, and to enable patients in having a choice about how their consulted.

                          • Held via Microsoft Teams
                          • Open to any and all interested parties

                          BNSSG Training Hub will be delivering a FREE, virtual webinar on the HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap to Practice this coming Tuesday 14 September, from 19.00 – 20.00. Facilitating will be Lily Dixon, the Training Hub’s Paramedic Lead; Kerri Magnus, Advanced Practice Lead; and Rachel Butt, qualified HEE Roadmap Supervisor.

                          We are aware of the uncertainty around the HEE Roadmap, so we hope that – in sharing the learning we’ve accrued with you and your colleagues – we can help to clarify things, both for paramedics and supervisors, be they AHPs, GPs, or GPNs. To this end, Lily has mapped herself against stage 1 of the HEE Roadmap and designed her PDP against stage 2; this, in combination with her responses to the knowledge, skills, and attributes (KS&A) section, will be discussed and examined for examples of potential evidence for the portfolio route. There will be time to answer your questions, too, so do bring them along.

                          If this webinar is relevant and of interest to you, do come along – there’s no limit on numbers, so feel free to invite any colleagues, too.

                          For further information, please use the button below to access the sign-up form or contact Kerri at [email protected].

                          With an eye to the NHS Long-Term Plan’s goals, the HEE National Workforce Transformation team are offering to train primary care colleagues in BNSSG to use the HEE Star. The Star has been used by the team to address workforce challenges and define innovative workforce solutions across the country, as outlined in the videos linked below:

                          HEE is confident that increased use of the HEE Star model throughout primary care will support delivery of both integrated working and new roles. This training is available in two parts: Level 1 is an introductory webinar, and Level 2 – aimed at those experienced with facilitating workforce change or required to by their role – consists of two sessions followed by a HEE Star workshop focused on local primary care workforce challenges. Both levels are available this September.

                          Further information on both Levels 1 and 2 can be found in this document, produced by HEE.


                          If you or a colleague join either level of the HEE Star Training, the Training Hub requests that you contact us, too, at [email protected]. In your message, please confirm:

                          • Your name
                          • Your PCN’s name

                          The next of BNSSG Training Hub’s GP Buddy Meetings is this Wednesday 29 September, from 20.00 – 21.00. These meetings, arranged by one of the Hub’s GP Fellows, Dr. Pamela Curtis, offer a safe space for GPs returning to work after a short career break (due to parental leave, ill health, or caring responsibilities).

                          This is an opportunity in which to discuss the things that matter to you – be it clinical work, career goals, or your personal well-being – and in a format of your choosing (as a ‘study group, via action learning sets, etc.). Increase your confidence, and support colleagues in a similar boat.

                          To register for the next GP Buddy Meeting, please complete the application form.
                          Is remote consulting compatible with personalised care or does something have to give?

                          In a new report commissioned by the NHS Personalised Care Institute, and conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West (NIHR ARC West) and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC), the relationship between personalised care and remote consulting is examined. Both are at the forefront of NHS England’s agenda, but the distance between clinician and patient afforded by remote consulting is not necessarily conducive to creating health plans jointly them.

                          In addressing this potential conflict, researchers sought to answer the following questions:

                          • How does remote consultation affect access to healthcare and quality of care?
                          • Is remote healthcare as good as face-to-face?
                          • When are remote consultations not suitable?
                          • Can personalised care be delivered remotely?

                          In short, the report concludes that remote consultations are not inherently good or bad, with their effectivity being dependent on the patient’s needs, life stage, and finances. Health professionals are advised to think carefully about how to use remote consultations, and for what purpose, and to enable patients in having a choice about how their consulted.
