Skin Cancer Audit and Research Data Inc (SCARD Inc) has been formed as the custodian for the research data collected by Skin Cancer Audit and Research Database (the SCARD Audit).
The integrated Skin Cancer Audit and Research Database, or SCARD, is a comprehensive platform with vast information on skin cancer. This database serves as a data repository and enables researchers and medical professionals to access and analyze the data. One of the critical features of SCARD is its data transfer capability, which allows for the seamless transfer of information on skin lesions. With this feature, healthcare providers can easily access vital information about a patient’s skin condition, enabling them to make informed decisions about diagnosis and treatment.
SCARD is a RACGP-accredited CPD activity. This means that healthcare professionals who use the platform can earn CPD points for their participation. By participating in SCARD, healthcare professionals can stay up-to-date with the latest research and best practices related to skin cancer diagnosis and treatment while improving their clinical skills and knowledge.
In addition to being a RACGP-accredited CPD activity, SCARD is also an ACRRM PDP-accredited activity. Healthcare professionals who are members of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) can earn Professional Development Program (PDP) points using the SCARD platform. The ACRRM accreditation recognizes the educational value of SCARD and its ability to help rural and remote healthcare professionals stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in skin cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The dual accreditation from RACGP and ACRRM highlights the importance of SCARD as a valuable educational tool for healthcare professionals in Australia.
