British Association of Sclerotherapists plans to set up Register of Approved Sclerotherapy Training Courses

Dedicated to promoting safe and effective treatment for varicose veins and telangiectases the British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) is the foremost source of education and advice for practitioners and the public, providing regular CPD events and an informative website.

2022 will see the launch of an exciting new BAS initiative, spearheaded by Emma Davies and Hilary Furber, to make available a Register of Sclerotherapy Training Providers that meet the BAS standards for training new practitioners. Currently there is no recognized standard of training in the UK and the BAS feels an obligation, in the interests of public safety and protecting best practice standards, to provide a framework and standards against which training courses can be benchmarked.

BAS Operations Manager Hilary Furber said: “This initiative is driven partly by an increase in enquiries 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. The BAS does not itself provide initial training courses but it is uniquely placed to assess and monitor the quality of training providers. We plan to publish the application process and start accepting applications from providers by Spring 2022.”
