  Statement of Need / Program Overview

Atopic dermatitis (AD), or eczema, is a common chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin disease marked by pruritus and skin irritation. It is associated with substantial morbidity and greatly impacts quality of life. The majority (~67%) of patients have mild disease and are adequately managed by their primary care provider (PCP). Patients with more difficult to treat disease are frequently referred to a dermatologist or other specialist.

This symposium is focused on AD diagnosis and treatment, impact of emerging AD therapies, adherence to therapy, and management of the pharmacy benefit. It is specifically designed to meet the needs of health care decision makers (HCDMs) from health plans, insurers, health systems, and other payers responsible for the benefit management, therapeutic category review, and AD clinical pathway development.

  Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
  • Review recent insights into the pathophysiology of AD
  • Discuss the safety, efficacy, and attributes of emerging therapies for the treatment of AD
  • Align diagnosis and treatment strategies with evidence-based guidelines to optimize AD treatment outcomes
  • Apply methods to improve adherence to AD treatment
  • Assess benefit design strategies to improve overall patient outcomes for AD
