Top holiday fears revealed in poll

Top holiday fears revealed in poll

A poll of more than 2,000 Britons by sunshine.co.uk about their ‘Top holiday fears’ found that 33% were worried about getting sunburn.

Professional therapists are well placed to talk to clients about sun protection, particularly if going on holiday comes up in conversation.

The following article, published in International Therapist (July 2013, Issue 105) points FHT members to some useful resources – including posters and leaflets that can be given to clients about sun protection. There is also a link to an FHT-endorsed Mole and Skin Check Guidelines leaflet, which helps therapists to notice changes in their clients’ skin and offers guidance on how to broach the subject without causing unnecessary alarm.
