After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:
- Compare the relative effectiveness of tumor staging systems for the identification of patients with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) at high-risk of recurrence or metastasis
- Utilize tumor staging and risk evaluation to stratify candidates for Mohs micrographic surgery, standard excision, or nonsurgical interventions and discuss the benefits and risks of each therapeutic option
- Evaluate guidelines for surgical and pharmacologic treatment of cSCC based on clinical trial data
- Identify patients with unresectable cSCC who would benefit from targeted systemic therapy
