Dermatotoxicology: Addressing common Occupational Skin Conditions

Presented By: Howard Maibach, MD 

Webinar Details and Resources: https://www.coeh.berkeley.edu/20web1007

Dermatotoxicology, a toxicology sub specialty, addresses problems associated with skin exposure to chemicals. This webinar with Dr. Howard Maibach will review the most common occupational skin conditions faced by industrial hygienists, occupational physicians, general toxicologists, and allied health care workers. In addition to reviewing common conditions including dermatitis, learners will also explore exposure tools for percutaneous penetration, a passive process that can occur following skin exposure to chemicals, as a tool to understand other organ effects.

At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:​
– Review common clinical dermatologic entities including diagnosis, prevention, and treatment
– Identify the most useful diagnostic tests
– Discuss human, animal, and computer simulated tests used to determine potential hazards and risks
