Early Detection, Diagnosis and Prognosis

Conducted by Honorary Associate Professor Amanda Oakley, these one-day courses addresses clinical and dermatoscopic diagnosis of common benign and malignant skin lesions, particularly pigmented lesions.  The courses are hosted by MelNet with support from the Health Promotion Agency.  All health professionals undertaking skin examinations are invited to attend, whether new to or experienced in dermatoscopy. Participants should gain increased confidence in their diagnostic skills, leading to a reduction in unnecessary excisions of benign conditions. The courses are highly interactive. The course material is based on the chaos and clues, modified pattern recognition method.
