Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Laurie Parsons, a dermatologist and wound care expert in Edmonton. They discuss some of the strengths dermatologists bring to the field of wound care. And they answer resident questions such as:

  • Approach to dressings in general (broad categories and when to use them)
  • What dressings are best to prevent scars or improve cosmetic outcome?
  • When should wound care be referred to a vascular surgeon? To a nursing service? Or when is it best for a dermatologist to manage?
  • How soon can you expect wounds to heal in simple and moderately complex cases?
  • What to do when you’ve tried everything you can think of, and the wound is not healing?

As always, the discussion goes beyond these specific questions and offers residents a wide-ranging look at this critical aspect of patient care.

Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Vincent Richer, a dermatologist and expert in lasers and phototherapy in Vancouver, BC. They briefly discuss just how cool lasers are and then get down to practical considerations such as how to determine which laser treatment to use for a specific condition. For example, what setting to use for vascular lesions vs melanocytic lesions and other finer considerations for finessing laser selection. Dr Richer and Dr Purdy also discuss the resources residents can use and approaches they can take to gain a better understanding of how to make effective clinical decisions on the use of lasers and phototherapy.

Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Perry Grewal, a dermatologist involved in clinical trials in Edmonton Alberta. They cover when to start and when to stop biologics and address specific questions from dermatology residents such as:

  • How long do I have to wait before initiating a biologic in a patient with latent TB
  • Should I hold a biologic for surgery?
  • How do you start a biologic in a woman who wants to get pregnant, is pregnant, or is breastfeeding?

This episode offers an excellent opportunity for residents to hear from an expert who is frequently an invited speaker on biologics at conferences. In a nutshell, this episode is a perfect example of what this podcast series is all about!

Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Sam Hanna. Dr Hanna, a dermatologist practising both medical and cosmetic dermatology in Toronto, Ontario. Dr Hanna has a particular interest in Botox and injectable fillers for aesthetic improvement and is involved in research trials. They discuss the need for dermatologists to inject themselves into the increasingly crowded field of cosmetics. Dermatologists have unique expertise to ensure cosmetic injections are appropriate, safe and effective. As well, Dr Hanna offers some advice to residents on how to manage the stigma around aesthetic dermatology. He also answers some practical questions like:

How to assess the ageing face and how to prioritise different treatment options that yield the most noticeable aesthetic result?

Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Sandy Skotnickithe founding director of the Bay Dermatology Centre and an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, Department of Medicine in the Divisions of Dermatology and Occupational and Environmental Health.

Dr Skotnicki is also the author “Beyond Soap: The Real Truth About What You Are Doing to Your Skin and How to Fix It for a Beautiful, Healthy Glow.” She is a renowned expert in contact dermatitis. On this episode Dr Skotnicki tells residents what they need to know about:

  • Patch testing
  • Product labelling (and mis-labelling)
  • The value of AAD conferences for residents
  • Food allergens
  • Top 5 hot allergens
  • Preparing for the college exams
  • Sunscreen reactions
  • Her best contact dermatitis case ever

And of course, resident questions:

  • When should a community dermatologist who does patch testing refer to a tertiary institution with more sophisticated testing?
  • How to counsel a patient on cross reactants?
