(Atopic dermatitis (AD) is an increasingly prevalent chronic systemic inflammatory disease, with significant and often underappreciated impacts on quality of life. Patients with more severe forms of AD tend to not respond to first-line therapies and traditional systemic second-line treatments can cause significant adverse effects that preclude their long-term use. An improved understanding of disease etiology has led to the development of new therapies that target pathological pathways involved in AD, including the Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signaling pathway. This webinar will review the clinical manifestations and assessment of AD and provide a practical approach to AD treatment with the newer targeted agents, particularly in individuals with more severe AD, for whom other systemic and non-targeted therapies are not effective. This program has been developed for US dermatology allied healthcare professionals (HCPs) and will include several interactive case study discussions.
The learning objectives of this event are:
Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Wednesday, August 24, 2022

This initiative is intended for US dermatology allied HCPs, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses, as well as other allied HCPs who may be involved in the management of patients with AA.
