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.

Register Now!

Wednesday, November 4, 2020  |  6:30 PM – 8:00 PM ET Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic, inflammatory, musculoskeletal disease with a significant impact on quality of life and functional ability. Despite the data showing the overall impact of PsA, delays in diagnosis are common, which can lead to long-term joint damage and functional disability. In this CME Outfitters Live and 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.

 

Differentiating Psoriasis in Skin of Color


Participate Now

Psoriasis (PsO) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder affecting about 1%-3% of the world’s population. There are many challenges in diagnosing and successfully managing individuals with PsO. For example, while there are similarities in PsO among ethnic groups, there are notable differences in presentation, quality of life, and treatment of PsO in people with skin of color.

The first episode of this four-episode CME Outfitters BriefCase learning series includes a video clinical encounter on differentiating PsO in people with skin of color, based on notable differences in disease presentation.

The Importance of Care Coordination for Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis


Participate Now

Psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are complex disorders that require coordinated care between dermatologists and rheumatologists. Challenges to effective management include a lack of education of patients and health care providers (HCPs), suboptimal communication, and clinicians’ lack of a holistic treatment approach.

The third episode of this BriefCase series on challenging cases in PsO and PsA features a physician-patient office scenario video on educating the patient and strategies to coordinate care between specialists, as well as between specialists and primary care, with a goal of optimizing patient outcomes.

 

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.
