The body of work explores early detection of melanoma by skin self-examination (SSE) by those at risk to develop a melanoma. This research evolved from qualitative research in focus group testing of rulers and magnifying glasses to assist with SSE to a randomized trial of the educational and skills training intervention with qualitative measures by self-reported surveys and diaries. This randomized controlled trial demonstrated an efficacious in- person skills training program for melanoma patients and their skin check partners. Now, a new group of melanoma patients and their skin check partners are trained remotely and followed for 18 months. In order to improve the early detection of melanoma by physicians providing care, Dr. Robinson's research seeks to move beyond the usual didactic lectures with online mastery learning. This interactive learning will enhance the reliability of healthcare provided by primary care physicians via opportunistic screening. Dr. Robinson's research interest over the last decade has also included prevention of skin cancer by harm reduction messages and educational interventions with teens and young adults with a particular focus on reducing indoor tanning and sun protection. Recently her sun protection research was expanded to include wearable UV sensors to improve awareness of the amount of UV exposure an at-risk individual receives. She is working with a team of researchers to refine the UV app and sensor to deliver actionable messages to at-risk melanoma patients and their families.
