Event Overview

One Day Essentials are full-day online clinical conferences, available free-of-charge to all RCGP members, offering a minimum of 126 hours of CPD per year. All conferences are broadcast live and all session recordings and presentation slides are available to access from RCGP eLearning for up to nine months after the conference (we endeavour to upload content as quickly as possible after the conference, but it typically takes one to two weeks).

This one-day interactive online conference will cover a range of dermatological health topics designed to support GPs in improving patient care.

We see a variety of skin conditions affecting patients of all ages and from diverse ethnic backgrounds and we aim for our talks to cover the full spectrum of patients that we see in Primary Care dermatology. We will take some time to discuss conditions specific to women, and discuss the particular challenges in diagnosis and treatment for patients with skin of colour.

We hope that you find the conference interesting, enjoyable and thought provoking.
