The Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology (CEBD) is pleased to announce the new CEBD Skin of Colour Resource. This online information resource was officially launched at our Evidence Based Update Meeting on cosmetic dermatology held on 12th May in Nottingham.
The purpose of the Skin of Colour Resource is to provide health care professionals with regularly updated, comprehensive evidence based information on skin of colour in the form of systematic reviews, review articles, guidelines and patient information leaflets. Recommendations for relevant textbooks and websites are also included.
The Skin of Colour Resource covers a wide-ranging list of disorders that are unique, prevalent or clinically variable in pigmented skin. Vitiligo has not been included, as although it is clinically striking in skin of colour, it has no racial predilection and is already very well covered in current literature.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first comprehensive online resource of this type. It is our hope that it will serve as an invaluable tool to health care professionals, stimulating interest, good patient care and research.
The CEBD Skin of Colour Resource is compiled by Dr Douglas Grindlay (Information Specialist) and Dr Sharon Aryiku (Clinical Lead).
As always, we welcome feedback.
