The British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) will be launching a new Register of Approved Sclerotherapy Training Providers in 2022.
The initiative will be led by nurse prescriber Emma Davies and operations manager at the BAS Hilary Furber. The register will meet the BAS standards for training new practitioners and provide a framework and standards against which training courses can be benchmarked, explains the BAS.
Furber said, “This initiative is driven partly by an increase in enquires from aesthetic practitioners seeking sclerotherapy training from a reputable provider, and partly by concerns about the safety and efficacy of treatments offered by some inexperienced and inadequately trained practitioners. We plan to publish the application process and start accepting applications from providers by Spring 2022.”
