Join thousands of general practitioners nationwide
Melanoma is a type of cancer with which Australian general practitioners are, unfortunately, all too familiar. Melanoma accounts for 75% of skin cancer deaths. According to the Melanoma Institute Australia, approximately 14,000 Australians are diagnosed with melanoma annually and more than 1,800 die from melanoma each year – that is five people a day! Sadly, Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world – with melanoma rates doubling from 1986 to 2006 - and they are still rising.
At Australian Clinical Labs, we offer you the support to evaluate your prognostic knowledge of skin cancer medicine and improve the health outcomes of your patients, while also earning Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. The Skin Excision Evaluation Program enables general practitioners, who refer skin histology specimens to Clinical Labs, to submit provisional diagnoses for cases where histological evaluation is needed.
