Melanoma Apps study: Skin self-monitoring app assessment for people at increased risk of melanoma

Melanoma risk assessment and tailored prevention in general practice

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer, affecting over 51,000 Australians in the past 5 years. Early diagnosis and timely treatment has been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity of melanoma. Furthermore, education and monitoring plays an important role in early detection and prevention behaviours. This study will use surveys and qualitative interviews to explore the experience of using smartphone applications to monitor concerning moles in people at increased risk of melanoma.
