Kia ora koutou,
On Friday 7 May 2021, MelNet and Auckland Clinical Nurse Specialists are hosting a skin cancer study day for nurses in the Auckland region. This may be of interest to your PHO and general practice teams in the northern region. The following information was supplied by Melnet. Please contact them directly if you have any queries on firstname.lastname@example.org:
The event will be held at the Clinical Education Centre at Auckland City Hospital. Both primary and secondary care nurses and nursing students are encouraged to attend. The day will provide an overview of skin cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and care, increasing understanding of the journey of a skin cancer patient and the critical role of a nurse throughout this journey. It is also an opportunity for networking with colleagues across the region, fostering new connections, collaboration and sharing of resources. The cost of attending is $75.00 per person.
We will promote the event to the DHBs and some GP practices we have on our database, among others. Are you able to distribute this information to Auckland Primary Health Service?
