Activity Information

Activity Description

Improving care for patients with psoriatic disease and atopic dermatitis (AD) is profoundly boosted by facilitating better patient-provider communication and implementing targeted treatment strategies. Deep Discovery enhances participants’ adeptness in these areas through innovative experiential learning and presentations. The multiprofessional team of presenters will demonstrate mechanisms of action of therapies using a HoloLens—a mixed-reality device. They will also discuss effectiveness and safety of existing and emerging targeted treatments for psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and AD and elaborate on shared decision making. Learners will gain expertise in the main pathways of immune activation and build inspiration to translate recent scientific advances into patient-centered care.

 

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who specialize in dermatology. Other healthcare professionals providing care for patients with psoriasis, PsA, and AD may benefit from participation in this educational activity.
