Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Evaluate common yet challenging, or controversial, patient-management issues routinely faced by practicing dermatologists.
- Formulate evidence-based answers to clinically relevant questions encountered in everyday practice.
This session (modeled after the American College of Physicians’ Multiple Small Feedings of the Mind) is designed to provide evidence-based answers to common,
challenging, or controversia, patient-management problems. Clinical topics in four different areas are addressed in the session. The topics chosen are heterogeneous and reflect issues commonly seen by practicing dermatologists. There is one moderator and four presenters for each session. Each presenter is asked to address two to four questions that are assigned prior to the meeting. Each presenter has a different set of questions. Answers to questions should be concise and evidence based.
