Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun: Changing sun protection practices in NZ

Skin cancer is our most common cancer accounting for over 80% of cancers diagnosed in New Zealand every year. And yet it is largely preventable by reducing excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation, either from sunlight or from artificial sources like sunbeds.

This presentation will focus on an overview of our recent research activities within the Cancer Society Social and Behavioural Research Unit on the primary prevention of skin cancer.
