Online Specialty Course: Rosacea


Rosacea is a challenging skin condition for any skin treatment practitioner. The accepted aggravating factors of the rosacea skin are well known, however this lecture goes beyond the common triggers of rosacea inflammation and explores those least understood; those linked to the endocrine system, adrenal stress, overactive enzyme activity and changes to cellular organelle function.

This short course covers the physiology, biology and morphology of Rosacea; with particular emphasis on its cellular triggers. We will also explore the different sub-types of Rosacea and how to recognise them.

The Objectives of this course is for the learner to understand the following: 
•  Understanding that Rosacea is a multi-faceted condition
•  There are a number of triggers and aggrivating factors
•  The innate immune system is a major factor in the Rosacea condition
•  How to diagnose the different types of Rosacea
•  How to prepare protocols of daily care and better treatment options

Typical completion time: 3 hours 45 mins. This micro-credential is awarded 4 CPD points


All of these courses consist of a series of lessons, each consisting of reading materials followed by a video presentation and then on to an assessment covering the lesson content.  These assessments feature multiple choice answers, and you need to score a passing grade in order to progress to the next lesson. In courses with shorter lessons, we refer to these assessments as quizzes. To assist you with your assessments/quizzes, some of our courses have a feature we call Quiz Assist® which is a response tool that provides instant feedback when you answer an assessment question incorrectly. Its key benefit is that it shows you where to look for the information in your course notes or presentation to help you answer the question correctly. If your course features Quiz Assist® it will be marked as such. All of our courses are awarded CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points and allow you to download a certificate of completion. Some of our compliance related courses offer other independent certifications from external providers.
