Despite the higher incidence of cutaneous melanoma in White people, overall survival in non-White populations is significantly lower. Black patients are three times more likely to be diagnosed at later stages and face longer durations between diagnosis and treatment. This and other inequalities in skin cancer care, such as skin cancers more prevalent in people of color being termed “rare” and the Hispanic population being understudied and undertreated in melanoma, has shown a need for education that addresses health care professional (HCP) biases and raises awareness of disparities and assessing dermatological issues in skin of color (SoC), including showcasing strategies for racially inclusive screening.
In this CMEOCast podcast episode, expert faculty will discuss how clinicians can improve awareness of racial disparities in melanoma outcomes; recognize, address, and monitor their own biases when managing dermatological conditions in SoC; and integrate best practices that account for structural racism and barriers in the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of melanoma and other dermatological conditions in people of color.
