This textbook provides a comprehensive, practical guide to the identification of a range of common dermatological conditions encountered within primary care. It features a problem-based approach to the topics and conditions covered. Clinical photographs, diagrams and pertinent tables along with clear learning objectives, clinical pearls and pitfalls in each chapter facilitate understanding in the diagnosis and management of a range of common dermatological conditions.
Textbook of Primary Care Dermatology empowers the reader to develop their understanding of how to deal with a range of common skin, hair and nail problems. It is ideal for training and practising primary care physicians seeking a quick reference guide to use in their clinical practice and the trainee dermatologist seeking a primer on the topic. It is also suitable for other members of the primary care team including nurses, pharmacists, physician associates and clinical assistants, and it is very useful for hospital-based doctors and nurses in other disciplines who want a quick, practical reference to common dermatological problems.

• Contains useful quick reference tables which can be used during a busy consultation to look up various presentations or treatments in dermatology
• Provides patient information leaflet templates that the busy doctor can copy and give to their patients
• Features videos on a variety of dermatology procedures, including on how to perform a punch biopsy, bandage a leg ulcer and freeze warts using cryosurgery

• Dr David Buckley is a principal in general practice and GP trainer who has developed a special interest and expertise in dermatology and skin surgery. He obtained his basic medical degree from the National University of Ireland (Dublin) in 1982. He joined the Dublin Vocational Training Scheme in General Practice in 1983 and spent the next three years specialising in general practice which included six months in the dermatology department of the Mater Hospital, Dublin. After this he spent six months training at the Dublin Skin and Cancer Hospital, Hume Street, Dublin. Dr Buckley then spent two years working as the chief medical officer in a large mission hospital in the north of Kenya with APSO (the Irish development agency) where he perfected his skills in surgery and tropical medicine. On return to Ireland in 1989, Dr Buckley established a new general practice combined with a primary care dermatology practice in his home town of Tralee. Having begun on his own, the practice has since grown to include five doctors, three nurses, a clinical assistant and seven administration staff. He completed a year-long Diploma in Practical Dermatology in the University of Wales College of Medicine in 1990. He established the Solas Dermatology and Laser Clinic 2000 and changed the name to the Kerry Skin Clinic in 2018. Dr Buckley is a founding member of the Primary Care Dermatology Society of Ireland (1996) and the Primary Care Surgical Society (2012). He has been a member of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology since 1993. He has published seven scientific papers on community based dermatology and cryosurgery in peer reviewed journals and this is his second book on primary care dermatology. He has also contributed chapters on two international textbooks on cryosurgery. He is an honorary lecture in dermatology for the Irish College of General Practitioners and was awarded a fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners (London) in 2018 for his contribution to medicine.
