An Introduction to Skin Cancer
Delivered online and designed to be self-paced, this course has been developed for any health professional who views or treats skin as part of their daily practice.
Ideal for newly qualified doctors, practice nurses, physiotherapists, dentists, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists, melanographers, dermal therapists or laser and IPL therapists – this course will explore the basics of skin cancer and teach participants how to recognise suspicious skin lesions, alert their patient/client, and advise them on what to do next.
Gain practical information and knowledge about what to look for, learn how skin cancer is managed, and understand why accurate diagnosis is essential. This is the ideal course for professionals with an interest in supporting the prevention and early diagnosis of skin cancer.
*Please note that this course will not teach participants how to diagnose skin lesions, which is the role of doctors or nurses who have completed comprehensive training in dermoscopy.
If you are a doctor or nurse who already works in skin cancer medicine please explore our Certificate of Skin Cancer Medicine and Certificate of Dermoscopy courses. These courses are the recommended starting point on our education pathway, which culminates in Accreditation and Fellowship.
