At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to:
1) Question skin lesions that should be biopsied
2) Understand which skin cancers need further treatment and what factors make a high risk tumor
3) Identify patient groups at high risk for skin cancer
Professional practice gap to be addressed: Help to understand the need to identify patient groups at high risk for skin cancer and perform screening for those groups. To understand skin cancer isn't always a low grade malignancy that can be purposefully overlooked.
Overall goal: Assisting in knowledge base to enable one to make proper decisions regarding evaluation and management of skin cancers.
Target audience: Physicians, mid-level providers, nurses
