Activity Description and Educational Objectives

In this activity, experts in dermatology and pediatric primary care discuss the management of patients with atopic dermatitis. A patient also joins the discussion to provide unique perspectives on living with atopic dermatitis and interacting with healthcare providers.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
  • Diagnose atopic dermatitis in individual patients based on recognition of clinical manifestations and application of current diagnostic criteria and guidelines
  • Describe the mechanisms of action and clinical profiles of new and emerging topical and systemic therapies for atopic dermatitis
  • Select appropriate treatments for patients with atopic dermatitis based on current guideline recommendations, the safety and efficacy of available treatment options, comorbidities, and burden of disease
  • Employ shared decision-making approaches to create individualized treatment plans for atopic dermatitis
  • Implement patient/caregiver education strategies to improve adherence to atopic dermatitis treatment (eg, managing application-site pain associated with topical therapies) and assess the effects of treatment on patient quality of life

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pediatricians, primary care practitioners, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians involved in the management of atopic dermatitis.
