Abstract

Solid organ transplant recipients are highly susceptible to skin cancer. The major driving factors are immunosuppressive medication and ultraviolet light. Appropriate sun protection markedly reduces the development of skin cancer. Skin cancer recognized at an early stage can reliably be cured, and fatal outcomes can be prevented. The aim of this work is to educate organ transplant recipients and health care professionals involved in their care, to increase awareness of skin cancer in this high-risk population and thus to optimize the long-term outcome of patients with skin cancer. Our newly developed website provides free access to various educational materials, including leaflets, presentations and interactive elements using edutainment.
