New CPD skin care webinar for nurses New CPD skin care webinar for nurses

Skin problems are common among older people, affecting 83% of the over 80s. Pruritus is the most frequent complaint, yet few patients consult a healthcare professional.1 Skin conditions that are not managed can be severely detrimental to an older person’s general health and affect quality of life.

Dry skin develops as a result of a skin barrier defect and all adults become prone to thinner, more fragile skin as a result of the ageing process. Emollients are key to management.

Our free CPD accredited webinar will help you understand more about managing dry skin conditions in older patients and the role of emollients.
