New training resource - how to perform a MED test


Dr Jonathan Batchelor has developed a training resource to demonstrate how to perform a Minimal Erythema Dose (MED) test.

Prior to commencing treatment with narrowband UVB, a Minimal Erythema Dose (MED) test is performed to identify a patient’s individual sensitivity to narrowband UVB and ensure that the patient receives a starting dose of narrowband UVB suitable for their individual skin.

The training resource is available to download as a PDF document or as a Powerpoint presentation on the CEBD website. For further details click here.
