The Society for Pediatric Dermatology
Established in 1975, the mission of the Society for Pediatric Dermatology is to advance the specialty through education and research, to develop new means of treatment, and to provide advocacy in support of pediatric patients with skin, hair, and nail disorders. Informative patient education videos have been developed for patients with atopic dermatitis and their families.
International Eczema Council
Founded in late 2014, the International Eczema Council (IEC) is a global nonprofit organization led by dermatology experts on atopic dermatitis. The IEC is dedicated to increasing the understanding of atopic dermatitis and promoting its optimal management through research, education, and patient/family care.
National Eczema Association
The National Eczema Association is a nonprofit organization founded in 1988 to improve the health and quality of life for individuals with eczema through research, support, and education.
Clinical Assessment Tools
Children’s Dermatology Life Quality Index (CDLQI)
CDLQI is 10-question patient-reported assessment tool designed to measure impact of any skin disease on the lives of children ages 4-16. (Lewis-Jones MS, Finlay AY. Br J Dermatol. 1995;132(6):942-949).
Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI)
EASI is a clinician assessment tool designed to measure clinical severity of atopic dermatitis. Severity scores can range from 0 (clear) to 72 (very severe). (Hanifin JM, et al. Exp Dermatol. 2001;10(1):11-18).
Investigator Global Assessment (IGA)
The IGA is a clinician assessment strategy designed to provide a snapshot of overall disease severity in dermatologic clinical trials. (Futamura M, et al. J Am Acad Dermatol. 2016;74(2):288-294).
Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM)
The POEM is a patient-oriented, self-assessed measurement tool for monitoring aspects of atopic dermatitis in routine clinical practice or in the clinical trial setting. (Charman CR, et al. Arch Dermatol. 2004;140(12):1513-1519).
Scoring Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD)
SCORAD is a clinical tool used to assess the extent and severity of eczema. (Severity scoring of atopic dermatitis: the SCORAD index. Consensus Report of the European Task Force on Atopic Dermatitis. Dermatology. 1993;186(1):23-31.)
