It is our pleasure at Skin Cancer Symposiums to bring you Professor Cliff Rosendahl from the University of Queensland, Australia and Associate Professor Amanda Oakley from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
As doctors, we are often the first and sometimes the only ones to see our patient’s skin. But we have little training and hence most of us, little confidence in confidently diagnosing skin lesions. How can we improve our confidence? The best way, without doubt, is with training in dermatoscopy which will help you recognise skin cancers earlier and with greater precision.
Traditional dermatoscopy courses have been complicated and difficult to follow due to the teaching of numerous complex algorithms at the same time. Skin Cancer Symposiums has created a simplified approach using what is increasingly recognised as the two most user friendly algorithms (one for pigmented lesions and one for non-pigmented lesions) to deliver a unique world-class teaching event. Professor Cliff Rosendahl, the co-author of ‘Chaos and Clues’ and ‘Pigment without Prediction’, breaks down dermatoscopy teaching into simple, easy to follow algorithms. Professor Amanda Oakley, the founder of the world-famous dermatology resource Dermnet will be adding to Cliff’s insights.
In addition Dr Chris Boberg and Dr Andrew MacGill will provide practical talks on the day to day application of dermatoscopy.
The interactive presentations take you through a sequence of “black and white” enquiries of your observations to help you determine if a lesion is benign or malignant. The decision to excise or not is then followed by “how to make a specific diagnoses” for each benign and malignant lesion (nevus, solar lentigo, dermatofibroma, melanoma, SCC, BCC etc).
The Certificate in Advanced Dermatoscopy is a carefully orchestrated educational process that ensures you develop a solid footing in dermatoscopy for the safe clinical management of skin cancers.
This unique course is highly rated and runs in London, Melbourne, California and Auckland with over 1000 participants to date (GP, surgeons, dermatologists and nurses) giving close to 5/5 reviews.
You will be able to apply your new skills the very next day in your practice with our complimentary bundle which includes:
Our Early Bird specials end 29th February 2020.
In day 2, we will consolidate your learnings from day 1. We will then add to and reinforce further insights to help improve your ability to diagnose melanomas, BCCs and SCCs with greater sensitivity and specificity. In day 2 Professor Cliff Rosendahl will introduce you to advanced applications of ‘Chaos and Clues’ and the ‘Prediction without Pigment’ algorithms. Cliff co-authored both these algorithms which provide a logical framework to help answer the most important clinical question “does this lesion need removing?” By the completion of day 2, you will become proficient and will feel inspired to start assessing your patients lesions with more accuracy and with more confidence.
All participants will receive a complimentary Dermatoscope (worth £270 including VAT).
