Chances are someone in your workplace has been affected by skin cancer
As kids we are taught to 'slip, slop, slap, seek and slide' but not that much about the ABCDEs of skin cancer - a simple process that allows anyone to check their skin for the warning signs of skin cancer and is the clinical best practice used worldwide. When a doctor performs a skin check, they look at every lump, spot and mole on your entire body; areas of concern are assessed for signs of skin cancer using the ABCDE method of melanoma detection.
When it comes to health, prevention is better than a cure
Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world. Despite being almost entirely preventable, skin cancer continues to affect at least 2 of every 3 Australians in their lifetime. By getting to know the ABCDEs of skin cancer, your employees are better prepared to take immediate actions should they notice any changes or warning signs. Early detection saves lives.

"At Queensland Credit Union we handed out the Skin Cancer Awareness Tools as part of our overarching Health & Wellbeing program: Mind, Body and Soul. The team here were very keen to try out the tool and see whether it really was as easy and effective to use as promised. The result was outstanding with some staff even detecting something of concern on their skin which prompted them to go and see their GP for further investigation"
