Description: Skin is the body’s largest organ. Its primary function is to protect the body. Hair and nails are a modified version of skin. This in-service will assist the aide in understanding types of conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails, such as psoriasis, shingles, scabies, warts, dermatitis, fungal infections and alopecia (just to name a few). Precautions, prevention and treatment options will also be discussed as well as the aide’s role. (Handout, evaluation and certificate template provided.)

All you need to participate is a speaker telephone and a room large enough for your staff. It is a controlled, radio-like environment where you will gather your staff, dial an 800 number, state your verbal password, and you’re connected.
