106481 - Skin Cancer Essentials

  • : Online

Skin cancer essentials is the RACGP NSW&ACT Faculty’s new workshop designed to upskill GPs in assessing and managing skin cancers in the general practice setting. The workshop provides practical learning experiences in dermoscopy, and a variety of biopsy and suturing techniques to equip GPs with the necessary skills to safely assess and manage their patients with skin cancers.

Relevance to General Practice

This workshop has been designed for GPs and GP registrars with minimal skin cancer experience, but who have a growing demand on their skills in this area. The practical component of this activity has been specifically designed to provide GPs with a level of proficiency suitable for the general practice setting.
