Dr Vinay is encouraging patients to book into the practice to have their skin checked. He is motivated in the early detection of melanomas. He is setting time aside in his busy day to make skin checks a priority. Apart from facilitating early skin cancer diagnosis, the skin check is an opportunity to assess your individual risk, offer education on skin self-examination and early detection of skin cancer and ways to modify behaviours in the sun and reinforce the primary prevention message of ‘slip, slop, slap, seek and slide’.
