    Event description

    Develop your dermoscopy skills at our upcoming workshop hosted by Amie St Clair Melanoma part of Melanoma Institute Australia.

    Dermoscopy is an invaluable tool for General Practitioners, offering a detailed assessment of skin lesions in everyday practice. 

    In this informative half-day session designed for general GPs, we provide an introduction to dermoscopy, highlighting its essential role in diagnosing and monitoring melanoma and other skin lesions within the context of general practice.

    Participants will build confidence by gaining foundational knowledge and practical skills in identifying structures and distinguishing skin lesions, including melanoma, through the “Chaos and clues” algorithm. Case studies will also be presented.

    As understanding dermatopathology is fundamentally important in comprehending dermoscopy, our workshop will also integrate essential aspects of dermatopathology, enriching participants' knowledge and enhancing their ability to interpret dermoscopic findings effectively.

    Join us to develop your understanding and refine your capabilities in dermoscopy, contributing to more effective melanoma detection and monitoring in clinical practice.
