Abstract :

The goal of this activity is for health care and wellness providers to develop a greater understanding of the importance of assessing ethnic and cultural factors when performing skin assessments, developing skin treatment plans or consulting with individuals regarding basic or advanced skin care treatments. Current data suggests that ethically/racially diverse patients may be identified and diagnosed with skin cancer at later stages than other groups. The heart of the course is the development of a personal skin profile based on observation and quantitative methods. Consultation is the key to a truly comprehensive skin assessment and in this way supports not only skin health but the early identification of potential skin cancer risks.
