'Entirely preventable': Kiwis hospitalised because of sunburn, study finds - NZ Herald

Hospital care for sunburn - don't let it happen! A study out today has found more than 160 Kiwis and Aussies have needed hospital treatment in burns units for sunburn in the last 10 years. Here is the really frightening bit: 22 patients were aged 12 months or younger and 18 were under five years old. The largest group were five to 14 year olds who made up 22 per cent of cases. And those figures do not count those needing treatment by their GP or as an outpatient. Sunburn is entirely preventable. Please people, let's protect ourselves and our babies. NZ and Aus have the world's highest rates of melanoma skin cancer, which is directly related to sun damage!

Brilliant initiative: It's critical that we all have our skin checked regularly for changes that might indicate skin cancer. We are a fan of Melanoma NZ's 'spot check' van, which is in Hastings today, at The Warehouse (10am to 4pm). The key messages are: watch for changes in your skin, and if you see a change have it checked out. It's that simple and could save your life!

If you’ve seen our new Spot Check Van on the TV or out in the community, then you’ll probably recognise Gill Rolfe - our Melanoma New Zealand Nurse Educator. In addition to providing education and free spot checks, Gill provides information and support to patients and families. If you’d like to reach out to Gill, she’s available by phone (0800 463 526) and email ([email protected]). Here’s a bit of an introduction to Gill….

We were very excited to hold our first dermatology educational event at Toitoi events centre on Wednesday evening.

We had over 60 people attend the event and it was great to see a few familiar faces, and meet a few new ones!

We hope that this event will be the first of many for Hawke’s Bay so stay tuned for our next one.

Those of us working outdoors in this scorching Hawke's Bay summer must take steps to protect our skin. If you're working alongside newbies to the horticulture industry, as we bring on enough people to complete the harvest, remind them to slip, slop, slap and wrap!
