CEBD Covid-19 Resource for Dermatology

Covid-19 Dermatology Resource (note this resource is being archived at the end of March 2021)

The Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology (CEBD) at the University of Nottingham are pleased to announce the new launch of a new Coronavirus Dermatology Resource.

This new online resource on the CEBD website has journal articles relevant for coronavirus and dermatology, along with links to guidelines, evidence-based resources and relevant patient information.

As you will be aware, there are many implications of the coronavirus epidemic for dermatology—in particular the impact of gloves and hand washing, issues around patients on biologics and other immune-modulating drugs, and how dermatology services can continue to be delivered in the current environment.

The journal articles in the Resource are found by a comprehensive PubMed search strategy with several hundred search terms, and will be updated regularly. There is a “what’s new” page linked to from the contents page that enables you to keep up to date with relevant new articles as they appear.

We are grateful to Dr Douglas Grindlay of the CEBD for compiling this resource.
