F037 - Approach to Pigmented Lesions

Friday, March 1; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • 1. Evaluate the current trends in the epidemiology of melanoma
  • 2. Recognize the various diagnostic issues of melanoma
  • 3. Summarize the strategies to achieve a patient-centered approach to melanoma detection

Description

Transitioning to a more patient-centered approach to melanoma detection requires a critical understanding of the current knowledge and issues surrounding the epidemiology of melanoma, precursors of melanoma, and the diagnosis of melanoma as they are related to limitations of diagnostic gold standard, under- and overdiagnosis of melanoma, role of dermatoscopy, and advances in molecular diagnostics. Faculty members will present data and analyses of their respective expertise, providing strategies for a more optimal management of melanocytic lesions that work toward decreasing the number needed to treat. The session is geared toward all levels of trainees and practicing clinicians.
