Statement of Need

Where the predominance of melanoma is seen in White people, roughly 20 times that of Black people, the weight of later stage presentation, delayed treatment, and poorer outcomes falls on those of racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncology treatment for melanoma, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis and suboptimal clinical management, prognosis, and survival rate.

In this CME Outfitters BriefCase, a faculty expert will guide learners through a patient case scenario reflective of the impact of biases, disparities, and health inequities that reduce the quality of oncology care for racial and ethnic underserved patients with melanoma. This program will provide actionable strategies, empowering attendees to recognize factors and implement changes in practice to improve melanoma treatment.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the impact of health inequities on patients with melanoma when crafting individual treatment strategies for optimal outcomes.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from the Johnson & Johnson Institute and the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses/nurse navigators, pharmacists, and dietitians specializing in oncology, pathology, radiology, dermatology, and primary care.
