World Health Skin Day 2019
College are celebrating our second World Skin Health Day on Monday 14 October 2019. We are releasing a report entitled ‘More than skin deep: Skin diseases in Australia – navigating the healthcare system’ which examines the impact of chronic skin conditions from the patient perspective, their psycho-social impacts in the form of stigma and discrimination and challenges with access.
College will also be launching videos to inform our community about dermatologists and the conditions they treat and to empower viewers to access specialist care when it is needed. The videos also focus on the projected dermatology workforce shortage, urging government to allocate more funding to train more dermatologists to improve timely access especially in rural and regional areas of Australia.
Please feel free to repost/ re-share information from our World Skin Health Day on Monday.
