Melanoma Risk Calculators

New Zealand Melanoma Risk Calculator Clinical Decision Support Tool 

BPAC is pleased to introduce the first on-line risk predictor tool for cancer in New Zealand. This new tool for melanoma is part of BPAC's National Bestpractice Decision Support Suite in collaboration with the Health Promotion Agency and Dr Mary-Jane Sneyd, University of Otago. 

The tool calculates a patient's risk of developing a first primary invasive melanoma in the next five years. 

You can find instructions for accessing the tool here.


Melanoma Institute of Australia First Primary Melanoma Risk Calculator

Researchers at the Melanoma Institute of Australia have developed a calculator to generate a patient's risk of developing a first primary invasive melanoma during the rest of their life. 

Please note, this tool is based on Australian data and may not perform reliably when applied to a New Zealand population. If you choose to use this calculator, it is recommended you select Tasmania as your region as this most closely correlates to NZ data.

Melanoma Institute of Australia Subsequent Primary Melanoma Risk Calculator

Researchers at the Melanoma Institute of Australia have designed a calculator to generate an estimation of a patient's risk of developing another primary melanoma over the 10 years following their most recent melanoma. 

Please note, this tool is based on Australian data and may not perform reliably when applied to a New Zealand population.
