Dermatology CE & Educational Resources

As the body’s largest organ, the skin is constantly working to protect the body’s internal organs and regulate temperature, among other vital functions, and the condition of a person’s skin can reflect their overall health and aging status. Diseases of the skin, such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, affect people of all ages and can take a major toll on the patient’s quality of life. CME Outfitters has developed this Dermatology Education Hub with a number of educational activities and resources to help you better treat and manage your patients with aging skin or skin disease in order to increase quality of life.

Our activities offer many credit types, including CME, AAFP Prescribed Credit, CNE, CPE, ABIM MOC, and ABP MOC. Each activity has been designed to meet the requirements for CME for MIPS. See each activity’s information page for the exact credit type and amount of credit offered.

Signals of Change in the Management of Atopic Dermatitis


Participate Now

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease that effects up to 18% of children and up to 10% of adults and can have a substantial negative impact on the quality of life (QoL) of patients and their families. Its management is challenging at any age, with patients and caregivers often becoming overwhelmed by the chronic and relapsing nature of AD. Establishing disease severity is essential to inform treatment decisions, as is information on new clinical trial data for therapies such as oral Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors. Thus, education that provides tools to establish disease severity and information on the development of new agents is warranted in order to mitigate the clinical and QoL impact of AD.

 

All Hands: Integrating a Team Approach to Risk-Benefit Individualization of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis Therapy


Participate Now

Although rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are associated with irreversible joint damage and physical disability, remission is now an achievable goal for the majority of patients, owing to advances in early diagnosis, new therapies, and improved treatment strategies. This CME Outfitters OnDemand webcast focuses on integrating a multidisciplinary approach to treating PsA and RA through case-based learning, with expert faculty discussing management strategies and how to integrate shared decision-making (SDM) into practice to facilitate appropriate treatment selection and empower patients.

In this CME Outfitters OnDemand activity, expert faculty will focus on assessment, treatment, and management strategies to provide patients with the best treatment aligned with evolving evidence and expert recommendations.

 

Giving Shingles Immunization Your Best Shot: Implementing a Shingles Vaccination Protocol in Your Practice

 

Participate Now

Shingles, or herpes zoster, is a common secondary infection for older patients. Almost all individuals over the age of 50 are latently infected with varicella zoster virus (VZV) and therefore are at risk of developing shingles with reactivation of latent VZV. Individuals who develop shingles often experience debilitating postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), secondary skin infections, eye problems, or neurologic conditions including an increased risk of stroke. Despite the existence of vaccines, the number of people vaccinated for shingles remains low. In large part, this is due to the majority of individuals being unaware that a vaccine exists, as clinicians often fail to initiate discussion about it. This CME Outfitters Live and OnDemand webcast will focus on the burden imposed by shingles, improving uptake of vaccination and series completion for shingles through patient education, and applying real-world strategies to implement shingles immunization protocols.

Safety and Efficacy of Emerging Treatments in the Management of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)


Participate Now

When measuring outcomes in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), it is important for clinicians to monitor disease activity, health-related quality of life, and any irreversible change in the organ system that occurred since the onset of SLE. While there are currently many therapies utilized in treating SLE, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, antimalarials, immunosuppressants, chemotherapy, biologics, and adjunctive therapies, there are still unmet needs with a mortality rate at 15 years as well as complications such as lupus nephritis and severe extrarenal disease.

However, the future is bright for patients with lupus, as drug development activities are currently unprecedented. In this CMEOCast podcast episode, expert faculty evaluate the safety and efficacy of these emerging therapies.
