Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of pediatricians and other clinicians who are involved in the management of pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis.

Program Description

This Case-in-Point™ program features an expert panel with a general pediatrician and 2 pediatric specialists to address the challenges in treating young patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. Faculty will discuss 3 cases of children with atopic dermatitis, comorbid asthma, and allergies, as well as disease-related psychosocial burden. This activity will cover the pathophysiologic underpinnings of atopic dermatitis, best practices in patient evaluation, common atopic and nonatopic comorbidities, clinical trial evidence for new and emerging pharmacotherapies, and recommended management strategies that emphasize shared decision-making with patients (and their caregivers) and a multidisciplinary approach in cases of more severe disease.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to:

  1. Differentially diagnose atopic dermatitis in pediatric patients, including identification of disease severity, phenotypes, and appropriate therapeutic interventions
  2. Compare the efficacy and safety of traditional immunosuppression modalities and biologic treatment options in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis
  3. Individualize treatment regimens for pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis to reflect disease presentation, comorbidities, and shared decision-making
  4. Discuss how to coordinate the ongoing management of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis based on communication and shared decision-making with patients, caregivers, and other clinicians
