16:30 – 17:00 The limits of patient-centred care: putting relationships at the heart of clinical practice

Since the term ‘patient-centred’ care was first used in the late 1960s, it rapidly become adopted as the gold standard of clinical practice. But is there perhaps an unintended consequence of this focus on the patient? Drawing on research from psychiatry, psychology and medical education, this lecture will explore whether clinical excellence requires a shift of focus to the doctor-patient relationship rather than just on the patient.

This session will feature the following Invited Lectures:

13:15 – 13:30 BAD Origins: Celebrating 100 years of Great British Dermatology

The British Association of Dermatologists was founded 100 years ago after the 1914-18 World War and the Influenza Pandemic which killed more people than the war.  These events had a profound effect on the world, with people searching for a new start: a new beginning.  The BAD was founded with this spirit of renewal; which is in some ways similar to the era in which we now find ourselves, fighting to start again and build up our services after Covid-19.

This talk will draw on the original documents from the founders of the BAD.  It will describe how the BAD arose out of the older BJD journal.  It will show how British Dermatology has developed over 100 years.  It will look on how some individuals can and did make systems change and develop and created a & nd seized opportunities. It will analyse some of the barriers to progress, which are still affecting us now.   What can we learn from the last 100 years to carry us forward now?

Psoriasis Lessons

Psoriasis is a common but highly complex immune-mediated disease. Research over the past several years has resulted in significant progress in our understanding of the key immune mechanisms underlying psoriasis which in turn have led to new, targeted therapies and the emergence of a stratified approach to management. Despite this progress we are still relatively ignorant of the natural history of psoriasis and its global burden. This lecture will annunciate a series of “lessons” in psoriasis which will include art; history; science; and geography.
