GP Education Day
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 diagnosis (Prof Iris Zalaudek and Prof Peter Soyer):
- Dermoscopy for diagnosis
- New technologies for diagnosis
- Plenary: How can we ensure evidence-based care across Australia? A view from the US (Prof Sandra Wong):
- Consumer/Clinician’s panel discussion following presentation
- Multidisciplinary care session: Cases that have taught me
- Diagnosis and staging of melanoma: Staging investigations
- Diagnosis and management of primary melanoma in the primary practice setting
The GP Education Day has been accredited with ACRRM PDP for 7 Educational Activity hours and 1 Performance Review hour. We are also looking into other accreditation providers and will provide an update once that is confirmed.
GPs are welcome to attend the whole conference. However, if you wish to attend the GP Education Day on the Saturday only, please select the ‘GP Education Day’ rate which will give you a ticket to the Welcome Reception on Friday as well as access to the Conference on Saturday.
*Please note that the programming, titles and speakers are subject to change.
