Guidelines you can use

The Academy is dedicated to developing rigorous, evidence-based guidelines of care for dermatologic conditions. In 2021, the Academy developed guidelines for you on AK management, and reconstruction after skin cancer resection

Guidelines that address the management of actinic keratosis were created by conducting a thorough analysis of the evidence from a systematic review based on five research questions. The result: 18 evidence-based recommendations for treatment.

The AAD also co-developed guidelines for the management of reconstruction after skin cancer resection. These guidelines offer recommendations related to the timing of reconstruction, management of anticoagulation, use of antibiotics, methods of pain control, and follow-up assessments.

These new sets of guidelines, along with others, are helping you meet your clinical and quality goals.
