Prurigo Nodularis: An Older African American Female Adult Presenting With Nodular Lesions and Persistent Itching

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Target Audience

The target audience will be comprised of dermatologists, specialty nurse practitioners, specialty physician assistants, and managed care pharmacists.

Program Overview

Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a chronic condition mediated by immune and neural dysregulation and presenting with highly pruritic, hyperkeratotic papules or nodules; the condition disproportionately affects African American patients compared to the general population. There are currently no FDA-approved therapies for the treatment of PN, leading to a high level of variability in clinical practice and the use of off-label agents; the current treatment landscape, or lack thereof, highlights the need for a multimodal approach to therapy and consideration of emerging agents. As a result, many health care professionals may be unaware of the standard, off-label treatments used, as well as the clinical data surrounding promising emerging agents for PN management and as a result, may miss opportunities to deliver evidence-based care. Join our expert faculty as they discuss patient scenarios utilizing methods to avoid missed opportunities for the care team, assess the clinical efficacy and safety of standard off-label, as well as emerging therapies, and ultimately devise effective treatment plans that encourage long-term adherence and address residual disease burden for patients with PN.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, learners should be better able to:

ANALYZE clinical data surrounding emerging treatments for PN
ASSESS the efficacy of standard, off-label treatments currently used for PN and residual burden of disease on patients
DEVELOP evaluation criteria for prurigo nodularis (PN) that incorporates characteristic features, including symptoms, presentation, and comorbidities
DEVISE a treatment plan that encourages long-term adherence
