Prurigo nodularis is a multifactorial, chronic inflammatory skin disease, characterised by extremely pruritic symmetrically distributed keratotic papules, nodules or plaques. It has a tremendous impact on patients’ quality of life, due to itch, poor sleep, and the visibility of skin lesions. It is associated with a significant psychological burden with increased rates of depression and anxiety. This is a challenging disease to treat, and the majority of current conventional treatments are used off-licence, often with unsatisfactory results.
This online module is designed to test your clinical knowledge and management of prurigo nodularis by presenting users with 10 clinical cases accompanied by multiple-choice assessment questions. Once you complete this module — and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% — you'll be awarded with a 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
