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.
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
