Updates in skin cancer diagnosis and management: Hybrid GP education evening

GPs play a vital role in the diagnosis and management of skin cancer, and to ensure the best outcomes for their patients, they need to be across the latest developments in the field.
Melanoma Institute Australia is pleased to be hosting a hybrid GP education evening featuring world-leading experts to provide updates for GPs in melanoma and complex non-melanoma
skin cancers.


  • Early detection: Essential knowledge for GPs – Dr Annika Smith (Dermatologist)
  • Surgical management of melanoma – A/Prof Alex van Akkooi (Surgeon)
  • Surgical management of non-melanoma skin cancer – A/Prof Sydney Ch’ng (Surgeon)
  • New developments in systemic treatment for early melanoma – Prof Georgina Long AO (Medical Oncologist)

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify high-risk melanoma patients and differentiate suspicious lesions using dermoscopy.
  • Recognise typical presentations of non-melanoma skin cancers and identify when adverse features indicate the need for specialist referral.
  • Discuss the importance of sentinel node biopsy as a prognostic tool to help risk stratify melanoma patients for adjuvant therapy and identify when a patient should be considered for this procedure.
  • Explain how adjuvant systemic drug therapy plays a role in the management of early melanoma and identify associated side effects.

The evening will conclude with a multidisciplinary case study panel discussion and Q&A.

This education is a CPD Activity under the RACGP CPD Program and ACRRM.
