In a unique joint venture, the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) and Laser Safety Australia have launched two new laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) safety courses to support doctors, nurses and other providers of cosmetic laser treatments.
ACCS Fellow Dr David Topchian attendees at the Cosmetext 2015 conferen ce in Melbourne: ‘This course is unique because it has been specifically developed with busy clinicians in mind.
‘It is online, readily accessible and participants are able to learn at their own pace and in their own time.’
The partners recognised the need for evidence-based and contemporary courses that are able to adapt and change with a fast-paced industry.
Complaints about adverse outcomes to laser and intense pulsed light treatments are becoming more common and ACCS and Laser Safety Australia believe that this new partnership will help to raise the standards of clinical education and improve outcomes for cosmetic patients.
