You could help save someone's life by learning to identify suspicious spots that could be skin cancer.
Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world, with one person dying every five hours from melanoma. Yet, many people don't know what to look for.
Beauticians, physiotherapists, massage therapists, nurses, hairdressers, tattooists and other allied health professionals can spend a great deal of time looking at their clients' bodies - often sighting skin in hard-to-see areas.
Learning to identify characteristics of skin cancer and encouraging your clients to get their skin checked could save their lives.
Watch the video below as Dermoscopist Elena West shows what signs to look out for, in this training session and Q&A on skin cancer detection!
