143208 - Expert Workshop of Aesthetic Medicine

  • : Online

This course will help you acquire advanced clinical knowledge and critical awareness of aesthetic medicine principles and treatment options. You will build on the knowledge gained from the Professional and Advanced Certificates. The two-day Expert Workshop of Aesthetic Medicine has a greater focus on difficult and complex cases in aesthetic medicine. Attendance at this expert workshop is the prerequisite for the online Professional Diploma of Aesthetic Medicine.

Relevance to General Practice

In the RACGP letter to the Medical Board of Australia 29 May 2015, in part, the concern that consumers often make rushed and ill-informed decisions to have these procedures done is real. As general practitioners (GPs), our role is to provide the best possible advice and care to our patients in all areas of their health. As such, GPs are in a key position to support patients who have cosmetic concerns. GPs need to be educated in how to safely support patient concerns in aesthetic medicine. 
The need to educate GPs is further reinforced in the Ageing across the life span: time to think again article by GE Pierard. 'Over the past decades, understanding of ageing skin has considerably expanded, with a welcome emphasis on differentiating true chronological ageing changes from photoageing (Table 1) resulting from habitual chronic sun exposure. 18–21'
