The burden of Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is great, affecting patients and their families. A wide range of treatment options are available for moderate-to-severe disease, in the US and worldwide. New therapies are well tolerated and recently approved for children, teens, and adults. This Education StationTM is a 3-activity series created to help train clinicians in the long-haul endurance that is AD treatment and management. It is designed to allow you to flex your clinical management muscles as you progress through multiple exercises, building your atopic dermatitis knowledge and skills.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of an international audience of dermatologists, allergists, and other clinicians involved in the ongoing management of patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.
After completing this activity, participants will be better prepared to:
- Describe atopic dermatitis pathophysiology with a focus on relationships with common comorbidities and targeted treatment options
- Assess patients with atopic dermatitis to characterize disease severity, biopsychosocial burdens, comorbidities, and treatment responses
- Discuss the clinical profiles and trial data for current and emerging targeted treatment options for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis
- Individualize treatment regimens for adult and pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis to reflect biopsychosocial burdens, comorbidities, and shared decision making
