10 Years Caring About You

[vc_row][vc_column offset=”vc_col-md-8″][vc_custom_heading text=”What is SCARD?” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”m-b-xs”][vc_column_text el_class=”lead”]Conceived in 2006 by Cliff Rosendahl, the Skin Cancer Audit & Research Database (SCARD) Surgical Audit Project is a surgical log designed for doctors who treat skin malignancies. It has been designed to facilitate the easy recording of useful data at the time of treatment so that the treatment of skin cancers can be tracked.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The SCARD system is used typically those in primary care roles that are working with skin cancer; such as doctors, nurses, pathologists, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons.

As well as the tracking of specimens this project also facilitates the generation of a confidential report on your computer. You are able to obtain a breakdown of your specimen management details including a breakdown by diagnosis, the number of new lesions sampled to exclude melanoma to find one melanoma, the percentage of new lesions treated to exclude non-melanoma skin cancer which are malignant, your diagnostic accuracy, the percentage of definitive managements which achieve adequate margins and other relevant details.

This project also gives you the opportunity to upload de-identified data to our website so that we can produce a report using pooled results. This report is then made available to you on our website for the purpose of comparison to your own confidential report generated on your own computer. Participation in the pooled results is optional for all users.[/vc_column_text][icon_timeline][icon_timeline_item time_title=”December 2006″ icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-play-circle” icon_size=”32″ icon_color=”#de5034″ icon_color_bg=”#ffffff”]Concept of a skin cancer audit discussed with the Skin Cancer Society of Australia[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_item time_title=”March 2007″]Public demonstration at the Skin Cancer Society of Australia Conference[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_feat time_title=”June 2007″ icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-user-md” icon_size=”32″ icon_color=”#de5034″ icon_color_bg=”#ffffff”]Registration for “The Audit” opened to Australian Doctors[/icon_timeline_feat][icon_timeline_item time_title=”December 2007″]Use of the SCARD spreads to New Zealand, Austria, Cypress, the USA & UK.[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_item time_title=”July 2008″]140 doctors & over 35,000 cases to the pool as of July 1st;  development of an online version commences[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_feat time_title=”December 2008″]RACGP Ethics approve online version for public use.[/icon_timeline_feat][icon_timeline_item time_title=”July 2009″]Online version is fully operational with 285 doctors and 92,000 pooled specimens[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_item time_title=”July 2011″]457 doctors & over 220,000 cases to the pool as of July 1st[/icon_timeline_item][icon_timeline_feat time_title=”Now” icon_type=”selector” icon=”Defaults-bar-chart bar-chart-o” icon_size=”32″ icon_color=”#de5034″ icon_color_bg=”#ffffff”]1400 doctors & over 130,000 cases across 440,000 patients[/icon_timeline_feat][/icon_timeline][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-md-4″]
