From the author: Renal transplant recipients are at high risk for multiple non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) that occur at a younger age and behave more aggressively. Consequently, the American Society of Transplantation has recommended that physicians conduct annual screenings for NMSC in this population. Few centres currently offer a dedicated surveillance programme. This article discusses' a model for skin cancer surveillance in which a trained nurse works within a validated competency programme to provide annual skin surveillance and education in the renal transplant outpatient clinic.
