Hertfordshire to award first Skin Camouflage Course Accreditations
The first accreditation for a Skin Camouflage course ever to be awarded by a university is soon be awarded by the University of Hertfordshire.
The course which started in April and ended last month attracted skin camouflage practitioners and individuals with skin disfigurements from all over the UK. Most of them were beauticians who wanted to gain formal qualifications in skin camouflage and to update their skills.
The course was developed by the University of Hertfordshire as a result of an approach from the Skin Camouflage Network which wanted the University to run it so that participants could be awarded academic qualifications for successful completion.
The course involved instructing participants on how to apply skin camouflage make-up to cover facial disfigurements or scars and allowed them to share good practice. The University of Hertfordshire was chosen to host it because of its knowledge of tissue viability and its familiarity with the counselling skins needed in such a sensitive field.
Madeleine Flanagan from the School of Continuing and Professional Development commented:
“We’re not just teaching people how to apply camouflage make-up, we’re also raising important psychological issues within a very delicate subject area and one which is often difficult for those affected to discuss openly. This work is providing insight into the specific needs of this client group and the skin camouflage practitioners who provide an invaluable and professional service”.
The next course will run in April 2006.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
