Statement of Need

Atopic dermatitis (AD) can appear differently across various skin tones; there are racial and ethnic differences in its epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and treatment. It is imperative that health care professionals improve their knowledge on the varying presentations and risk factors in patients of color in order to appropriately screen and treat these patients.

In this CME Outfitters Live and OnDemand, expert faculty will discuss recommended screening for AD among patients of color, the impact of racial disparities on patients with AD, and the application of optimal strategies for managing patients with AD.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate appropriate tools in the assessment of AD in patients of color.
  • Apply the latest evidence for the optimal management of AD based on disease severity in collaboration with patients.
  • Develop a long-term management plan in patients with moderate to severe AD that includes routine assessment and monitoring.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

Target Audience

Primary care physicians, dermatologists, nurse practitioners, PAs, nurses, and pharmacists
