Issues with the use of sun screen to protect from skin carcinoma
Description: Herbert Hönigsmann, MD of the Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria discusses issues in the use of sun protection by members of the public. According to Prof. Hönigsmann, a epidemiological study in a large human population is required and further, it is important to explain to the public that sun protection alone is not enough. For example, people need to shield themselves from the sun and it is also possible to wash protection factors into clothing and important to avoid the sun at midday. Prof. Hönigsmann also addresses the problem that people do not use sun screen properly, i.e. they do not apply sufficient amounts.
Recorded at the 2016 World Congress on Cancers of the Skin (WCCS) and the Congress of the European Association of Dermato-Oncology (EADO) in Vienna, Austria.
