The MASCED Educational Accreditation Programme has been developed by national melanoma and skin cancer charity, Skcin.

As a health professional who sees my clients regularly and treats the body covering areas that you may not be able to see yourself, this puts me in a unique position. I annually take the MASCED skin surveillance training to learn how to identify suspicious lesions. It’s not for me to diagnose but increasing my knowledge could help spot something suspicious and give some sound advice for getting it checked out.
