Educational Objectives

  • Identify non-melanoma skin cancers
  • Describe diagnostic criteria for non-melanoma skin cancers
  • Discuss treatment parameters for non-melanoma skin cancers

Target Audience
The target audience includes primary care physicians, family practice physicians, internal medicine physicians, and other healthcare learners who treat patients within the primary care setting.

Educational Need
Our 2020 ATSU Annual Needs Assessment identified “Dermatology” as the most requested topic showing a professional practice gap where more information was needed. Many of our attendees practice in rural areas and their patients are limited to a family practitioner for care when no specialists are available.

Professional Practice Gap
Patient education is a fundamental part of caring for patients, especially those with a non-melanoma cancer diagnosis. A practice gap exists, where patients want more information, while health care providers are limited by time constraints or difficulty helping patients understand or remember.

Desired Outcomes
After this course, the attendee should have gained competence when assessing a patient who presents with Non-melanoma cancer. This course will present information with treatment options to hopefully, improve patient outcomes.
