Program Description

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, relapsing skin disease which places a significant burden on patients, resulting in a lower quality of life. In moderate-to-severe disease, patients also suffer from high levels of psychological distress, increased prevalence of psychiatric diseases, and increased risk of cardiometabolic comorbidities. During this Medical Crossfire®, dermatology experts will engage in a multidisciplinary roundtable moderated by a family physician with the additional perspective of a patient’s treatment journey as video clips throughout the discussion. Topics covered include disease manifestations, diagnostic criteria, pathophysiology of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis and treatment approaches with both current and new and emerging therapies. Faculty will emphasize the importance of individualized treatment plans in a patient-centered approach.

Intended Audience

This activity is directed to dermatologists, allergists, immunologists, rheumatologists, primary care physicians, researchers; other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of Atopic Dermatitis are invited to participate.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, clinicians should be better able to:
  • Outline the burden of atopic dermatitis (AD) on patients.
  • Discuss the most recent information on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of AD, and how this is likely to affect the management of patients with AD.
  • Analyze how older and newer therapies fit into the AD treatment paradigm.
  • Clarify how a multidisciplinary, patient-centered, approach to care may improve patient outcomes in AD.
