F046 - Translating Evidence into Practice: Atopic Dermatitis Guidelines

Saturday, February 17; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Discuss recently described AD co-morbidities and how they affect practice.
  • Recognize features that might raise suspicion for primary immunodeficiency in an infant with severe AD.
  • Discuss new therapeutic interventions for AD and how they fit into the current armamentarium.


The AAD AD Guidelines were published in 2014. Tremendous advances continue to occur each year. Our panel of speakers will update the audience on the latest developments in the field including co-morbidities and therapy. We will have specific discussions about atopic dermatitis as marker for primary immunodeficiency in some infants. We will also discuss the work of the International Eczema Council as it tackles unmet needs and research gaps in the field of AD. This activity has been approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) for up to 20 MOC Component 2 Self-Assessment points. For more information about MOC, please visit the ABD website at www.abderm.org.
