These can be severe hormonal changes, such as those caused by Oestrogen deficiency’s, through to the keratolytic disorders, such as seborrheic keratosis that are benign but unsightly.

HOW THESE COURSES WORK?
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.
