[2 min watch] Skin cancer medicine as a preventative health service in your practice
“General practice, like all parts of medicine, is evolving, and our patients’ expectations are different. One trend I’m seeing is that patients are much more interested in preventative care rather than ‘I’m sick’.” In this short video, Dr Tony Dicker discusses the benefits of providing high-demand skin cancer services as a preventative measure to improve patient outcomes.

In the video, Dr Dicker speaks about the high demand for skin cancer checks in primary care, because skin cancer is so prevalent in Australia and patients “want to know that they’re okay”.
He goes on to speak about how GPs can add this simple, safe and precise service as part of your everyday work.
