DATE OF RELEASE/EXPIRATIONOctober 20th 2023, from 11am-12pmET
TARGET AUDIENCEThe intended audience for this program is dermatologists, allergists, immunologists, advanced specialty practitioners, pharmacists, and nurses.
STATEMENT OF NEED/PROGRAM OVERVIEWInterviews with patients living with atopic dermatitis (AD) found that medication safety was the single most important factor in their treatment decisions. However, confusion remains regarding the mechanisms of the disease and the impact of comorbidities when deciding on a treatment plan for AD. Education can bring clinicians up to date with the most current evidence on available therapies for moderate-to-severe AD, long-term safety, and associated impacts on quality of life. The recently published American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommendations on awareness of comorbidities in AD management can also help clinicians choose the most effective and safest options from the evidence-based treatment paradigm.
Join an expert panel of dermatologists and allergists to discuss the impact of comorbidities on moderate-to-severe AD treatment decisions, along with the importance of medication safety in treatment decisions. Panelists will discuss how to help patients reach long-term control of their disease and review the benefits, limitations, and risks associated with evidence-based treatment of AD.
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVESAfter completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Evaluate current evidence, including long-term safety data and impact on quality of life, for currently approved agents for the treatment of moderate-to-severe AD
- Explain how the presence of comorbidities can influence the treatment of moderate-to-severe AD
