||College of Medicine & Dentistry
Infectious and dermatological conditions are commonly occurring forms of disease,
particularly in tropical, rural and remote locations. In addition, over-the-counter
(S2 and S3) medications form the front-line treatment of some of these conditions
in patients who initially present in pharmacies. This integrated subject will allow
students to describe and differentiate a range of infectious diseases and dermatological
conditions, and recommend suitable treatment options, including S2 and S3 medications,
and non-pharmacological management options. Students will also gain an understanding
of the prescription medications used to manage these conditions. Students will also
demonstrate communication skills during clinical scenarios with simulated patients.
Students will develop an understanding of antimicrobial stewardship and microbial
prevention and treatment, the identification of common infections and skin diseases,
factors affecting the use of topical medications, and the role of the pharmacist and
pharmacy assistants in over-the-counter primary health care.
