Skin in the class

A unique teaching case for primary school students and teachers

It will be different if the skin is not completely standard due to, for example, a deviation in the pigment or if someone is constantly itchy. Research shows that the quality of life of people with a skin condition is lower. The impact of bullying on children with a skin condition is significant. Skin Netherlands, the association of patients and patient organizations in the field of skin and hair disorders, has developed a teaching package for primary education, in order to increase the basic knowledge about the skin in students between the ages of 8 and 12. In this, they have collaborated with the Dutch Association for Dermatology and Venereology. Nursing specialists and educational parties are also involved in the development of the teaching material.
