Iterative Data-Driven Education for Evolving Strategies of Care in cSCC
The incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is growing in the United States and epidemiologic data are likely to have underestimated the burden of the disease. New therapies are emerging for the management of advanced/unresectable cSCC that have the potential to alter outcomes. Clinicians need to be made aware of these new options and how they can be integrated into clinical practice. Dermatologists and Mohs surgeons will need to identify patients who are not surgical candidates and engage a multidisciplinary team to discuss systemic options, such as immunotherapy and optimal management approaches.
To address the challenges facing clinicians in the appropriate alignment of treatment to patient, a 3-activity curriculum was developed. This curriculum was hosted online for one year, and findings from this education will be used to develop future content.

When the Patient Voice is Heard in Education, Does the Clinician Listen?
In recent years, the U.S. healthcare system has moved to adopt new models of care that focus on personalized medicine and patient centricity. It follows that the education developed for healthcare professionals must meaningfully empower them with insights for more effective patient engagement and facilitate patient activation. The challenge is, and has been, to meaningfully represent the patient “voice” or their real-world care experiences in content developed by non-patient faculty.
