About the Project

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.

We have a unique opportunity for a Dermatology Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist to work:

a) Two days a week as a specialist/advanced nurse at UHD as an integral part of the learning experience within the BU studentship

b) Three days a week undertaking doctoral studies with BU
