Dermatologic Procedures Course Description

Patients expect primary care clinicians to care for skin problems. New techniques allow rapid assessment and treatment with less scarring. Although often neglected in residency training, various skin procedures can and should be daily in your practice. Why refer the patients out when you can diagnose and treat most of them? This dermatology CME course includes a dermatology training for common skin procedures, including skin anesthesia, skin biopsy techniques, cryosurgery, electrosurgery, nail procedures, dermoscopy, and coding. Over 1,000 actual clinical slides are used in addition to text to review treatment of lipomas, cysts, ingrown toenails, warts, skin tags, chalazions, abscesses, actinics, seborrheics, basal cell, and squamous cell cancers, malignant melanomas, and much more.

The first day of the course is dedicated to the dermatologic procedures themselves. Understand the approach to the patient with a skin lesion including providing safe and effective local anesthesia. Practice performing all types of skin biopsies including punch, shave, curette/cautery, and excision. Cryosurgery reviews the use of topical refrigerants, liquid nitrogen, and hand-held cryo units. As most CME course participants say after seeing electrosurgery: “Amazing! Practical.” Used every day in the office, these techniques enable treatment of common problems you never thought you would treat; skin lesions, benign nevi, telangiectasias of the face, ingrown toenails, pyogenic granulomas, and more.

The second day of the dermatology course reviews clinical surgical dermatologic problems in detail. A wealth of clinical slides of various skin lesions and procedural videos are used to reinforce the content. During this portion, dermoscopy is demonstrated and practiced, as used in the primary care office.

Additional useful material includes an interactive session on procedural coding and at the end of the course developing an implementation plan is discussed.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • Perform common office dermatologic procedures including skin anesthesia, skin lesion biopsy, cryosurgery, electrosurgery and Dermoscopy.
  • Identify various skin lesions that should be biopsied and are surgically treatable in the office.
  • Describe the diagnosis and treatment of various benign and malignant skin lesions.
  • Discuss when to refer patients for subspecialty care.
  • Explain coding and billing issues and pitfalls.

Dermatologic Procedures February 10, 2015
Reviewer: Jill Shelby, FNP-BC from Lafaytette, IN United States  
NPI and their instructor in this course have done a great job with introducing common dermatologic procedures into general practice.  Dr. McNabb is well versed in multiple procedures and dermoscopy.  He has a personal mission to bring these topics into daily practice and to encourage providers to watch for and treat various benign and malignant skin lesions as well as perform dermologic procedure within the general practice office.  NPI is a well-organized and professional company with years of experience. They bring in expert physicians in multiple specialties to train providers on procedures they can provide to the patient. The course contents are thoroughly covered and applicable to daily practice and can be implemented immediately. They choose high quality conference locations that provide complimentary breakfast, lunch and snacks that are delicious and satisfying.  I will plan to go to another NPI conference in the future.  It was an exceptional learning experience.

Dermatology procedures course September 15, 2014
Reviewer: Lisa Burr from Austin, TX United States  
Loads of info in manual, but viewing/discussing slides and hands on use of equipment most helpful.  Plan to apply what i learned as soon as possible.
Instructor very knowlegeable with advanced technical understanding and skills.  A little bit too much on Nascar side notes.
