Type of the activity: Capacity Building (Training or Workshop). Teaching and develop knowledge, skills and techniques in a particular field. While training can have any form, workshops are more formal and also include exchange of information between participants.

General description:

Face-to-face workshop that makes use of the same tools as the rest of the medical specialties: the anamnesis, the physical examination and, occasionally, the complementary tests, that added to the previous study and medical knowledge, both theoretical and based on experience, they allow to arrive at the correct diagnosis of the dermatological or systemic disease that has cutaneous manifestations. The workshop should address the following topics:

– Anamnesis in dermatology.

– Physical Examination of the Skin.

– How to Describe a Dermatological Injury?

– Types and Classification of Skin Lesions.

– Diagnostic methods.

– Pathognomonic skin lesions of some diseases.

Focus area:

Clinical Examination

Problem statement:

The skin can provide very useful diagnostic data in the physical examination of any patient, since many of the internal and multisystemic diseases are initiated or accompanied by skin signs or symptoms. That is why the medical student must be trained when performing dermatological semi-technology in order to establish an accurate diagnosis.

Target groups:

Medical students

Beneficiaries:

Medical students

Objectives and indicators of success:

– General Objective: To provide the medical student with the semiological tools to carry out an adequate dermatological physical examination, which allows him to differentiate the types of skin lesions and establish a presumptive diagnosis.

– Specific Objectives:

o Train when studying so that it carries out an adequate anamnesis that includes the dermatological history and the antecedents until reaching a morphological and topographic diagnosis.

o Train the student for the good performance of the dermatological physical examination that allows him to recognize, classify and diagnose the injuries found when examining the patient’s skin.

o Determine which complementary examinations should be performed for the diagnosis of a dermatological pathology.

o Recognize the different pathognomonic skin lesions of various pathologies.

– Success Indicators:

o Number of workshops given by professionals.

o Level of knowledge acquired by students on dermatological semiology.

o Student’s ability to recognize, classify and interpret a skin lesion.

Methodology:

– Establish the problem, the objectives to be addressed, the specific issues which should be developed and the group of beneficiaries.

– Production of advertising material that will support the different workshops.

– Establish the activities to be carried out in the different local societies.

– Realization and revision of the material that will be used to dictate the different workshops.

– Realization of the face-to-face workshop given by a professional in the area of dermatology on the basic aspects of the subject.

– Publication in social networks of the results obtained after the workshops.

Plans for evaluation:

The monitoring of the activity carried out by the LOME will be done through several meetings with the same where there is feedback and the local officer is guided in the objectives to be met for the progress of the activity, after which the evaluation of the activity will be done through the graphic evidence (photographs, videos, list of workshop attendees, certificate issued by the workshop) of the different activities carried out by local societies.
