PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

While guidelines regarding the management of AD in children have been published, variability persists in practice. Treatment inconsistencies and the chronic and relapsing nature of AD can lead to frustration for patients, family, and caregivers when managing AD. This program will focus on providing AD caregivers an update on recent pathophysiological findings that drive new therapeutic targets; reviewing severity and diagnosis of AD; and discussing the clinical profiles of existing and emerging agents, with focus on treatment individualization.
