Evidence-Based Recommendations for Therapeutic Options and Newly Approved and Emerging Treatments in Atopic Dermatitis

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Atopic dermatitis (AD) or atopic eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder characterized by an itchy, red rash most commonly found in skin creases. It is prevalent in 25% of children and 2% to 3% of adults. Quality of life issues associated with atopic dermatitis include: severe itching and resulting sleep loss, social stigma, negative impact on interpersonal relationships, loss of wages, loss of work and school productivity, restrictions on some activities, frequent applications of medication, costs of treatment, and frequent visits to health care professionals. Education to dermatologists is needed to close gaps related to utilizing evidence-based recommendations for therapeutic options and tailoring treatment to individual patients to improve quality of life.

In this quick CME Outfitters activity, or "CMEO Snack", expert faculty bring the patient voice to life by incorporating patient feedback as they discuss new and emerging treatments for atopic dermatitis.
