On-demand recorded 3 Aug 2022

This is the first in a series of two webinars specifically designed for new GPs in training, New Fellows and early career GPs to develop their clinical skills in the detection, treatment and management of skin cancers. Presented by Prof Peter Soyer.
The workshops will focus on developing core skin cancer skills within general practice including: 

  • Foundation and introduction to dermoscopy – Terminology and practical aspects
  • Identification of basal cell carcinoma and Bowen disease using dermoscopy
  • Identification of benign naevi using dermoscopy
  • Identification of melanoma using dermoscopy
  • Management of skin cancers – non-dermoscopy
The sessions have been designed to be interactive with participants encouraged to ask questions and discuss examples they will encounter in practice.

Learning outcomes

  1. Discuss how dermoscopy is used in identification and management of lesion identification.
  2. Differentiate between benign and suspicious skin lesions using dermoscopy.
