Many of you will have been to an evidence-based update meeting organised by the Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology at Nottingham where new evidence from systematic reviews and clinical trials are presented along with an expert panel involving clinicians, patients and methodologists. One unique feature of the meeting is that the topic for the next meeting is chosen by the delegates. The chosen topic for 2019 is hair disorders and topics will include an update on treatments for alopecia areata including JAK inhibitors. The meeting is being organised by the CEBD team led by Professor Hywel Williams in collaboration with the British Hair and Nail Society. So please save the date and do check the CEBD website as registration will open in November 2019. The meeting is usually fully booked, so please do not leave it until the last minute.
