Comprehensive Atopic Dermatitis Care: Enhancing Patient Care through Collaborative Management

Led by a nationally renowned faculty team of dermatology experts this curriculum will highlight various aspects of a multidimensional, holistic approach for better patient management by primary care and dermatology providers. This expert faculty discussion will include the recent advances in the AD treatment landscape, evidence-based recommendations for care, including behavioral modifications or habit reversal techniques for itch, and the importance of care coordination strategies with specialty providers. Additionally, woven throughout the curriculum, we will introduce brief, specific cases with video vignettes of actual patients with AD. The patients will speak about the challenges they face concerning the ongoing treatment and management of their condition, with a particular focus on quality of life issues.

Dermatologists, Family Practitioners, Primary Care Providers, Pediatricians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants

  3. Discuss strategies for coordination of care with specialists based on evidence-based standards
  4. Review the quality of life burden of AD (e.g., emotional/psychosocial, sleep disturbance, decreased productivity)
