A CPD program that benefits your patients
Our Skin Excision Evaluation Program provides a beneficial education opportunity for general practitioners. The program aids skin cancer management for patients by improving the identification of high-risk lesions so they can be treated at an early stage.
Simply send a minimum of 40 samples within 12 months of enrolment, using the Skin Excision Evaluation request form (with compulsory clinical data completed on the reverse), and you will be eligible to obtain points.
As you progress through the program you can rely on our expert pathologists to give you accurate diagnostic assessments. You can contact our pathologists personally if you have any questions along the way.
Compare your performance with your peers
As you progress through the program, your results are then made available to you via a monthly Skin Excision Evaluation Report, which highlights your performance against that of your peers and national benchmarks, while maintaining the confidentiality of all clinicians.
You will receive relevant statistical data presented in user-friendly charts, so you can identify areas for more practice and development.
Through consistent feedback from our unique reporting portal, you will see an increase in the accuracy of your diagnoses, an improvement in your clinical skills, and an increase in your confidence with patients. Monitoring adequate margin control and appropriate removal of pathological lesions can reduce patient risk of subsequent invasive procedures and risk of cancer recurrence, scarring, and infection.
