Protect the Skin You’re In: Early Detection and Prevention of Skin Cancer

When:
Tuesday, August 27, 2019
3:00-4:00pm ET/ 12:00pm - 1:00pm PT           

Purpose/Goal:

Transplant recipients are at a higher risk for developing skin cancer compared to the general population. This risk can be as much as 100 times higher due to the recipient’s need for immunosuppression medications after transplant. Pre-transplant screening and patient education are essential components of the evaluation process for potential recipients and require a team-based approach by dermatology and transplant care providers. Join us as we explore best practices associated with prevention, early detection and treatment of skin cancer for patients, both pre and post-transplant.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the associated risks for skin cancer, pre-transplant.
  • Identify the risk factors for skin cancer specific to people of color.
  • Discuss best practices for prevention of post-transplant skin cancer as determined by the multidisciplinary care team.

Moderator/Speakers:

  • Sarah T. Arron, MD, PhD
  • Rebecca Brown MSN, RN, CCTC (Moderator)
