Melanoma is ranked fifth behind the leading cancers. With existing outpatient waiting lists and additional backlog of the pandemic, it is important to identify resource efficient models of dermatology. The proposed research project aims to investigate the efficacy of technology supported nurse-led care for patients with skin cancer requiring assessment, support, and health education.
