Call to Action: Healing Racial Disparities in Dermatological Health is organized by CME Outfitters, LLC.

Premiere Date: Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Credit Expiration Date: Saturday, October 19, 2024

Statement of Need:
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 is understudied and undertreated in melanoma, have shown a need for education that addresses health care professional (HCP) biases and raises awareness of disparities and assessing dermatological issues in the 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.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Define the metrics and effects of health care disparities in dermatology.
• Optimize early diagnosis and management of dermatological disorders in patients of color.
