The International Association for Prevention of Complications in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPCAM) is holding its first training course on September 20 at the Anatomy and Surgical Training Centre at King’s College London.
According to IAPCAM, the training course will provide practical, hands-on training to show the latest evidence-based methods and advice from aesthetic professionals on how to manage complications.
The event will also cover training on injection techniques using cannulas and needles, the handling of hyaluronidase, discussions on protocols, practical scenarios of potential complications and interactive sessions with a range of complication cases.
Aesthetic practitioner and founder of IAPCAM, Dr Beatriz Molina, said that this course is designed to address the lack of uniformity on training and guidelines in complications. She also suggested that hands-on training of in-depth anatomy in real tissue specimens provides both cognitive and muscle memory that delegates retain for a much longer time-period.
The IAPCAM faculty includes Dr Molina, facial aesthetic surgeon Mr Jeff Downing, consultant dermatologist Dr Sandeep Cliff, and consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Ansar Mahmood.
The course is limited to 16 delegates who will be divided into smaller working groups throughout the day. It will take place the day before the IAPCAM conference, which is on September 21.
Dr Molina said, “As we are carrying out medical procedures, complications could happen to any of us, so it is important to learn how to manage these. We must share our knowledge to avoid complications and ensure that we refresh our anatomy.”
