Skin Cancer Study Days for Nurses

COVID-19 UPDATE: WELLINGTON AND AUCKLAND STUDY DAYS POSTPONED

Due to continued uncertainty around in-person events as a result of COVID-19, the MelNet Executive Committee have made the difficult decision to postpone the Wellington Skin Cancer Study Day, scheduled to be held at Hutt Hospital on 29 May, and the Auckland Skin Cancer Study Day, scheduled to be held at Auckland Hospital on 11 September 2020.

A new date has been set for the Auckland Skin Cancer Study Day for Nurses - it will now take place on 7 May 2021. 

A decision will be made about the Bay of Plenty Study Day in the near future. 

These courses are targeted at primary and secondary care nurses and nursing students. They provide an overview of skin cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and care, with a focus on melanoma. Participants should gain an increased understanding of the journey of a skin cancer patient and the critical role of a nurse throughout this journey.  

They are also an opportunity to network with colleagues across the region, helping to foster new connections, collaboration and sharing of resources.
