This year I’m continuing to improve my skin cancer knowledge by completing certificates from the Australasian College of Dermatologists.
Skin cancer will affect 2 in 3 Australians at some point in their lives so it is important to have your skin checked regularly. If you notice any new or changing moles, for example a change in size, shape, colour or whether they are itchy or bleeding, be sure to book in for a full skin check.
Of course prevention is the best cure, so don’t forget the sun block for days when the UV index is 3 or higher.
Who felt happy that after leaving school or university you never had to ‘learn’ again?
I remember this exact feeling until I realised that in reality we never stop learning. From job experience, to self-directed study or even watching YouTube videos we are constantly absorbing information.
Continuing to learn throughout life has many benefits, such as improving your confidence, fighting boredom and keeping your brain active and sharp which has been shown to help reduce the risk of memory issues such as Dementia later in life.
I spent this weekend teaching doctors, nurses and dentists the importance of safe injecting techniques whilst performing cosmetic injectables. We covered how to avoid possible complications and how to deal with them in clinical practice should they occur, keeping you all in safe hands.
It’s always a pleasure working alongside the fantastic team @dermamedicalaustralia and I wish the delegates the very best of luck for their future cosmetic careers.
