Trisha Harvey recently completed their MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) Accreditation - a national educational programme for hair, health and beauty industry professionals developed by national melanoma and skin cancer charity, Skcin.
Trisha Harvey has been awarded certification by swotting up on: the risks associated with UV, how to prevent skin cancer, how to detect suspicious lesions, how to communicate concerns and give the right advice, and for completing the MASCED Accreditation e-course.
The MASCED Accreditation Programme has been developed to significantly raise awareness of the early signs and symptoms of skin cancer and to promote the early detection of melanoma, to improve prognosis and save lives. The programme further raises awareness of the importance of Sun Safety to aid the prevention of around 86% of melanoma and the majority of all skin cancer cases.
This supports the call by public health figures for a wider perspective on who is most effective to help improve the nation’s health and address concerns raised in the Government’s 2020 Skin Cancer Vision.
At Skcin we strongly believe that this valuable training offered to the estimated 250,000 people working across the hair, health and beauty industry, will provide a vital first line of defence against this devastating disease and we would like to thank Trisha Harvey for taking part in this important educational initiative and for sharing their valuable knowledge to help others.
