General Practitioners are often the first health professionals to detect a patient’s melanoma and play a vital role in the management of the disease.
For optimal patient care, we need to ensure GPs are proficiently skilled to provide accurate and timely diagnoses and are across the latest evidence-driven understanding of management.
This is why we have designed a dedicated GP Education Day for the second day of the conference, and we hope that you will join us.
The GP Education Day includes the following sessions:*
- GP dermoscopy workshop (Dr Paul Fishburn and Prof Iris Zalaudek):
- Dermoscopy including patterns, colours and how to assess
- Chaos and Clues
- Clues to differentiate naevi from melanoma
- Early melanoma (Prof Iris Zalaudek and Prof Peter Soyer):
- Dermoscopy for diagnosis
- New technologies for diagnosis
- Diagnosis and management of primary melanoma in the primary practice setting
- A case-study based panel discussion
- Multidisciplinary care session: Cases that have taught me (Dr Kerwin Shannon, A/Prof Victoria Atkinson, Prof Grant McArthur, A/Prof Mark Pinkman and Sarah Lane)
- A case-study based panel discussion featuring patients with borderline resectable Stage III disease, brain-predominant disease and acquired resistance
- Diagnosis and staging of melanoma: Staging investigations (Dr Alex Varey, A/Prof David Gyorki, Dr Kevin London and A/Prof Elin Gray)
- Importance of staging patients (risk calculators)
- Staging in Stage I and II patients (including sentinel node biopsy)
- Lymphatic mapping
