Should examination of concealed sites (ano-genital, breast, scalp and oral mucosa) be a routine part of the full skin examination in the context of screening for cutaneous malignancy?

Members are invited to complete a two minute online questionnaire, in affiliation with the Melanoma Institute Australia and the University of Sydney, assessing full skin examination practices among Australian and International dermatologists.

Your responses will be informative as to standard practices of care, which is important for establishing both a collective approach to this common practice as a profession and from a medico-legal perspective. We strongly encourage to you participate.

Your responses are anonymous and will remain strictly confidential. All information collected will be non-identifiable.

Participation in this questionnaire fulfils CME/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements: participants can submit it under Category 3 Level 1 – GBM. (1 point).

The questionnaire closes in six weeks. Please submit the survey only once.
