Recognising and treating skin conditions in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

The 2016 Northern Territory Healthy Skin Workshop proceedings are available here and have great relevance for all practitioners in other regions (especially Hunter New England) who care for similar patients.  The workshop aimed to develop a framework to enable a coordinated approach to Healthy Skin in the Top End.

The proceedings highlight many useful resources and describe recent research into scabies, skin sores/infections, Streptococcus pyogenes  and MRSA epidemiology and clinical management,  and the contribution of housing and the environment.
