Effectiveness of Physician Counseling Sun Exposure

Very little evidence exists to understand the effects of physician counseling on sun protection behaviors. At least one intervention has been shown to increase healthcare provider counseling, but the effects of physician counseling on patient's use of sun protection behaviors or on subsequent development of skin cancer is not yet known.89 A randomized trial of a community-based, multiintervention program, including office-based counseling by physicians, showed that the intervention increased sun protection behaviors in the intervention towns.90 More parents recalled receiving advice to use sun protection behaviors in the intervention towns, giving some indirect evidence that the increased use of sun protection behaviors was due to more physician counseling. The United States Preventive Services Task Force concluded, in October 2003, that there was insufficient evidence to recommend for or against routine counseling by primary care clinicians to prevent skin cancer.91
