How This Door Hanger Will Benefit Your Patient
Regular skin examination can be an important deterrent to serious medical conditions. The process is easy enough to perform if the patient is properly instructed in how to perform one and what signs of disease to be watchful of. This product provides that necessary information.
The illustrations are professionally drawn by a trained medical illustrator. The front of the card demonstrates five different skin examinations a patient is recommended to perform on himself or herself. The reverse side of the card provides A-B-C-D-E criteria for assessing skin spots and pigmentation changes.
