170329 - Skin Cancer Diagnosis on the Big Screen

  • : Online

"Skin Cancer Diagnosis on the Big Screen" aims to equip GPs with the skills to confidently investigate, diagnose and treat a range of skin lesions. 
As well as listing the top tips for dermatology in General Practice, this workshop will discuss malignant dermatological manifestations, what not to miss, dermoscopy and Mohs surgery.

Relevance to General Practice

An estimated 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70, and of all malignancies, skin cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australia each year. Yet despite the warnings, the age-standardised incidence rate of melanoma continues to increase. 
Developed and presented by Specialist Dermatologist Dr Arif Aslam from Oxford Dermatology, this interactive workshop is suitable for GPs of all levels and aims to upskill participants in diagnosing changes frequently seen in general practice.
