As healthcare professionals, your expertise is vital in diagnosing and managing skin cancer, a condition that can have life-changing consequences. Our Skin Cancer CPD Module is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in this critical area of healthcare.
Our comprehensive module covers the two major groups: cutaneous melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Gain a deep understanding of these malignancies and learn to differentiate, diagnose, and manage them effectively.
In the 21st century, melanoma remains a potentially fatal malignancy, responsible for 75% of skin cancer-related deaths. While the incidence of many tumour types is declining, melanoma is on the rise. Stay at the forefront of your field by keeping up-to-date with the latest information and treatment approaches.
Upon successful completion of the module, with a minimum pass rate of 60%, you'll receive a downloadable 1-hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD portfolio.
This module is composed of 10 assessment questions on skin cancer. On successful completion of this module, you will gain an improved understanding of:
Differing clinical presentations of skin cancers
The need for diagnosis of pigmented lesions without delay when a diagnosis of melanoma is suspected
Appropriate margins needed for clearance in primary excision and wider local excisions to prevent incomplete tumour removal and recurrence
Staging for melanoma and SCC
High risk sites for SCC and BCC, and the effect on prognosis
