Contact hours: 6 (0 Rx)   
Presenter: Dr. Victor Czerkasij

Learn a variety of tips and tools to boost knowledge and skills needed for primary care practice. Dermatology Bootcamp will be presented in four parts by dermatology expert Victor Czerkasij, DNP, MA, MS, FNP-BC.

Dr. Czerkasij, FNP-BC provides tools and tips to help nurse practitioners build a strong foundation in dermatology by increasing the knowledge and skills needed for primary care practice. 

  1. Dermatology Fundamentals 
    Get the tools and tips to a strong foundation in dermatology by increasing the knowledge and skills needed for primary care practice. While dermatology encompasses over 2,300 diseases and disorders across the body’s largest organ and patients often present with underlying issues not even related to the skin, learning basic principles of science and identification will enable you to diagnosis, treat, and improve outcomes. This course will breakdown dermatology into manageable approaches to diagnosis & treatment and help you build confidence for the most common conditions faced in the primary care setting. 
  2. Over-the-Counter Dermatology Treatment Options for Under and Non-Insured Patients 
    Dermatology has the highest rate of recommending non-prescriptive medication of all specialties. Patients are increasing their use of over-the-counters based on recommendations from friends, dubious claims on the internet and their own reasons for self-care of acne, rosacea, eczema and other conditions. What is the data and science of tea tree oil, Shea butter, antifungals, the use of Vick’s VapoRub, steroids, aloe vera, ‘black soap’, “Cancema” and many other products? Can we safely recommend their use? What is the science and data? Join us on for this surprising and fascinating discussion.
  3. Cultural Practices, Care and Competence in Dermatology 
    Among Asian, Latino and Black populations are specific dermatology disorder and treatment paradigms that may not be familiar to all providers. “Natural” products for skin care are freely available, but what do we know about the ingredients? What of alternative medicines that are historical yet possibly carcinogenic? What of religious practices that can create difficulty for treatment but are deeply held beliefs that still require repetitive action on the skin? This will be a thoughtful, sensitive and wide-ranging conversation with clear suggestions for management.
  4. The Age of Tattoos: Challenges and Complications for Patient and Provider 
    Over a third of American adults have at least one tattoo and the number grows from year-to-year, and while they are more socially acceptable, the broad range of complications continues to increase. Ranging from scars, the inability to detect melanomas, infectious diseases, serious reactions to unregulated ink, increased hepatitis and HIV rates, with concerns over ink migration into the lymph, tattoos are a decision with life-time considerations for both patients and providers. What are the main areas of concern and what is the best practice to handle the most common problems? Photos will dominate the fast-paced and common-sense presentation.


Day 4: Pain Management Boot Camp for the Primary Care Provider 
Schedule: 8 AM – 4 PM (includes breaks)
Contact hours: 6 (0 Rx)
Presenter: Brett Snodgrass

Pain Management Boot Camp provides you with a framework from which to organize your approach to this challenging patient care issue, starting with making your diagnosis. Pain management expert Brett Snodgrass helps you differentiate among pain syndromes and analyze various treatment options (opioid/non-opioid/CAM) to determine best combination therapies. Safe opioid prescribing is emphasized. All concepts are pulled together in case study presentation. This is an outpatient primary care focus - how do you do approach the patient with chronic pain?
