About this Unit
This unit builds on previous clinical and theoretical units to develop in-depth knowledge in dermatology and gerontology. Foundations of dermatology including the function and structure of the skin, assessment, differential diagnosis, aetiological factors and the management of disorders of the skin, with particular emphasis on common foot conditions and co-morbidities will be investigated. Population’s trends, aging norms, pathology, co-morbidities and attitudes to aging will be explored. Particular focus will be placed on pathophysiology, mechanics, diagnosis and treatment options to maintain normal daily activities.
