Led by a nationally renowned faculty team of dermatology
experts, this curriculum will spotlight various aspects of a
multidimensional, holistic treatment approach for pediatric
patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). The presentation will
provide discussion around the recent advances in the AD
treatment landscape, evidence-based recommendations for
care, including therapeutic patient education (TPE) regarding
behavioral modifications or habit reversal techniques for itch,
strategies for care coordination and appropriate referrals
among dermatology specialists to better support a connected,
co-management approach, and through the use of patient
storytelling, acknowledging the quality of life burden of
patients with AD with tools to better understand how to
manage quality of life aspects within the context of symptom
control and overall disease management. The program will
conclude with key teaching points and an opportunity for Q&A.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Review strategies to overcome gaps in AD care, including
identification, prevention, guideline adherence, and
reducing disease burden.
2. Assess current pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic
options for treatment of AD in the pediatric population.
3. Discuss best practice strategies for the care coordination
of atopic dermatitis (AD) with specialists based on
evidence-based standards and holistic treatment
4. Utilizing video vignettes of actual patients, recognize the
quality of life burdens with AD including factors such as
emotional and psychosocial effects, sleep disturbances,
and decreased attention span and productivity.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs
of pediatricians who are involved in the care and treatment of
patients with atopic dermatitis.
