Evening with education forum and dinner with presentations and patient case discussions by key specialists to update GPs on modern radiotherapy as a treatment for extensive skin cancer.Relevance to General Practice
There is a high prevalence of Australians diagnosed with skin cancer each year and GPs play a pivotal role in skin cancer detection and management. It has been found that although radiation therapy is a documented treatment method for cancer, there is a gap in the knowledge doctors have around this treatment type. This activity aims to use clinical knowledge, investigations, research and patient cases to outline the benefits, efficacy and safety of this treatment option so GPs can provide their patients with the most suitable advice and treatment options for their needs.Learning outcomes
