Session 4: Concurrent breakout session 1
Breakout 4A – Creating sun protective environments
Research shows that New Zealand does not have enough shade in public spaces. In this session, Linda Buxton (Health Promotion and Advocacy Otago Southland Division, Cancer Society of New Zealand) will highlight efforts to create sun protective public environments which utilise shade as a sustainable and equitable way to reduce UV exposure.

Breakout 4B – Dermatoscopy in action
In this session Professor Cliff Rosendahl will teach the basics of the ‘chaos and clues’ approach to dermatoscopy in diagnosing melanoma and will demonstrate its practical application to specific cases.
Breakout 4C – MelNet melanoma multi-disciplinary meeting: challenging cases
In this session, a multi-disciplinary panel will discuss the clinical management of a range of challenging or unusual cases of melanoma.
Breakout 4D – Upcoming research and innovations 1
Presenters whose submitted abstracts have been selected will provide snapshots of upcoming research and clinical innovations
Breakout 4E – Patient-led surveillance as a new model of melanoma follow up care
In this session Associate Professor Katy Bell (NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow, School of Public Health, University of Sydney) will discuss the MEL-SELF randomised controlled trial which suggests patient-led surveillance in people who have previously been treated for localised melanoma can detect new melanomas more quickly than clinician-led surveillance, and how this new model of patient care could help reduce the burden on health care systems and offer greater convenience for those living further away from treatment centres.
