Enhancing the Skin Barrier of the Perineal Skin is organized by Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) and will be held during Nov 17, 2017 - Nov 17, 2020. The target audience for this medical event is RN, Nurse Practitioners, Health Care Professionals who work with WOC patients. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.12 Contact Hours. Course Description: The skin is the largest organ of the human body that fulfills multiple essential tasks. Among others, it forms the boundary between the inside and outside and it provides protection against mechanical and chemical threats. Prolonged and repeated exposures to irritants like urine, stool, skin cleansing chemicals and procedures may exceed the protective capacity of the skin barrier resulting in an incontinence-associated dermatitis of the perineal skin. This session will describe how the perineal skin is damaged and it will explore in detail the underlying mechanisms to enhance and restore the skin barrier function with topical leave-on products. Course Objectives are: Upon successful completion of this session, you will have a better understanding how topical leave-on products work in the context of IAD prevention which will enables you to make informed decisions regarding product selection. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Atopic Dermatitis Management in Rural and Underserved Communities: Overcoming the Distance for Improved Dermatology Care
Nov 01, 2019 - Oct 31, 2020 | CME : 1 | Contact Hours : 1 | USD $0.00
Atopic Dermatitis Management in Rural and Underserved Communities: Overcoming the Distance for Improved Dermatology Care is organized by RME Collaborative and will be held from Nov 01, 2019 - Oct 31, 2020. Accreditation: Physician Credit Designation: The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Nursing Continuing Education Credit Designation: The maximum number of hours awarded for this Continuing Nursing Education activity is 1.0 contact hour. Designated for 1.0 contact hours of pharmacotherapy credit for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses. Program Overview: Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects up to 10% of adults and 25% of children in the United States, and its prevalence is on the rise. Underrecognition and undertreatment of atopic dermatitis are common, leading to increased morbidity, poor quality of life, and rising healthcare costs. Patients in rural and underserved areas, where access to dermatology specialty care and follow-up are challenging, are particularly at risk for undertreatment. Given that primary care clinicians are often the sole provider of dermatology care and treatment in rural and underserved communities, this CME/CE program is designed to update these healthcare professionals about the latest advances in the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of atopic dermatitis. Faculty will discuss guideline-recommended management strategies, insights into the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis, and the impact of the disease on quality of life. Real-world patient experiences and strategies to overcome rural-specific barriers, including the use of teledermatology, will also be discussed. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Describe how to prepare clinical practice settings for telehealth adoption and implementation • Discuss the pathophysiology and immunologic factors associated with atopic dermatitis • Differentiate atopic dermatitis from other skin conditions • Integrate clinical data and guideline recommendations into individualized treatment decisions for patients with inadequately controlled atopic dermatitis Faculty: Elizabeth A.
