Skin cancers are common, and the incidence is rising in most parts of the world. Sportsmen and women are at particular potential risk. Sports medicine professionals (physios, rehabilitators and therapists) can have an important role in education, prevention and early diagnosis; indeed some professional sports such as cricket and golf have already taken the initiative in this field.
Dr Barry Monk is an experienced consultant dermatologist (and keen cricket watcher). Dr Monk will guide you through his presentation, ‘Sunshine and skin cancer’ what you need to know and how you can help to educate, prevent, and support the early identification of skin cancer.
Dr Monk has recently published a book exploring the NHS. Lifeline: ‘Difficult questions, uncomfortable answers… A deeper look at how to save our cherished NHS’ would be of interest to anyone in the health field and is available to buy online now.
The talk from Barry will last around 30 – 40 minutes followed by time for questions and answers.
This free online event for anyone studying or working in the field of sports rehabilitation is taking place on Monday 9th August 2021 at 7 pm. Sterosport are delighted to deliver this and all Injury Rehab Network events in collaboration with the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT).
