This activity has been developed to meet the educational needs of dermatologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and staff who are dedicated to the management of patients with cutaneous melanoma and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.


Learning Objectives

  • Review the incidence and prevalence of melanoma in the United States
  • Discuss NCCN's guidelines regarding a patient's individual risk of recurrence
  • Identify the value of the 31-gene expression profile for cutaneous melanoma to assess individual risk of sentinel lymph node positivity to improve patient selection for the surgical procedure
  • Discuss the value of the 31-gene expression profile for cutaneous melanoma to accurately predict individual risk of recurrence or metastasis to inform decisions on intensity of follow-up, surveillance imaging, patient referrals, and consideration of adjuvant therapy/clinical trial participation
  • Describe the value of the 40-gene expression profile for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma to predict individual metastatic risk to inform risk-appropriate management decisions
