Apr 26 - 28, 2018 | ISK kr79200 | Dermatopathology
Nordic Course in Virtual Dermatopathology (VDP) is organized by Nordic Dermatology Association (NDA) and will be held during Apr 26 - 28, 2018 at National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavík, Reykjavíkurborg, Iceland. The participants will get a running start on clinico-pathologic correlation with the virtual dermatopathology cases, followed by eight lectures on both tumours and inflammatory dermatoses. Interesting cases highlighting these topics will be demonstrated with clinical photographs and either photomicrographs or digital histopathological slides in virtual format in state of the art software. On the second morning, participants complete a multiple choice self-assessment exam in clinico-pathologic correlation, using virtual dermatopathology, through software access to relevant cases. The participants will use their own lap-top computers as microscopes and the software enables them to move from low to higher power. Once the questions have been answered, participants verify submissions of the answers, which thereafter cannot be altered. This will be followed with brief lectures given by the faculty on key features of the cases. The participants will also get handouts in pdf format, with the correct answers to the questions, discussion about the cases and references. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

PES understands the importance of offering inter-professional healthcare education, allowing colleagues to gain cross-specialty perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. The need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners. Icelanders have long been proud of their health care system and believed it to be among the best in the world. For a long time, Icelanders enjoyed (along with Japan) the highest life expectancy in the world. Iceland is a developed country and as such its major health issues are similar to countries in other parts of the Western World. Mental health problems and obesity seem to be the topics most frequently covered by the media. Another common issue is the status of the health care system itself which seems to be in a decline. All Icelandic citizens are covered by the national health insurance scheme. The system is mostly financed by taxes although a small fraction is paid with service fees (15%). The Icelandic healthcare system is divided into four different categories: health care clinics, health institutions such as mental health faculties and institutions with long term in-patients, university hospitals and teaching hospitals. Major hospitals include the Landspitali University Hospital in Reykjavik and the Akureyri Hospital. Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care in the face of increased budget restriction and resources within the overall framework of continued healthcare reform is fast becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners. It is timely to provide an overview of the current status of healthcare delivery systems, their impact on populations and how key health issues are addressed in both the UK and North America.
