Speaker Introduction:

Dr Sherman Gu graduated from Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (formerly known as Guangzhou College of Chinese Medicine) in 1982.  He has been involved in clinical practice, education and research in Chinese medicine since. Dr Gu completed his postgraduate studies with awards of Master of Applied Science and PhD at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University where he received strict training in Evidence-based Medicine (EBM) methodology including systematic review with meta-analysis, medical statistic, design, implementation and reporting of randomised controlled trials (RCT).  He has published papers and research letters in top medical journals such as Cochrane Collaboration, JAMA and British Journal of Dermatology.

Dr Gu has contributed to the current state of best available clinical evidence of Chinese herbal medicine for atopic eczema (AE) or atopic dermatitis under the guidance of the evidence-based health care framework on his research. The findings demonstrate a clear road map for future generations of evidence. Sherman was awarded with Pro Vice-Chancellor Prize- Higher Degree by Research from RMIT University for his excellence in clinical research. He is currently in a position of Executive Officer of FCMA, Clinical Associate of RMIT University. Dr Gu is practising at his own private Chinese medicine and acupuncture clinic in Victoria.

In this webinar, Dr Gu will introduce etiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnostic criteria and tools for assessment of severity of AE from the perspective of conventional medicine or Chinese medicine.  He will review clinical evidence from the previous 20 years in Chinese herbal medicine for AE and report his findings from a RCT pilot study. Dr Gu will also share his clinical experience in the application of the evidence with case studies from his patients.
