Course Summary

Skin diseases range in types, onset and severity in individuals. Healthcare providers need to be informed of the varied conditions and pharmacology treatments in order to provide comprehensive care. Dermatology treatment may be directed toward the treatment of an inflammatory process, co-morbid medical condition, or it may be cosmetic to achieve a patient desire outcome involving a change in physical appearance. The practice of dermatology is a blending of traditional and market factors, which health providers should be aware of when guiding patients in their health management and medication treatment choices.
