167152 - Eczema and the role of stratum corneum lipids

  • : Online

Delivered by a dermatologist, this eczema module provides comprehensive information on the role of stratum corneum lipids in eczema management

Relevance to General Practice

Eczema, also commonly known as atopic dermatitis, most commonly develops in the first year of life, but can present for the first time in adults. Data from BEACH (Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health) shows eczema was managed by GPs at a rate of 1.5 per 100 encounters, equating to 1.8 million times per year nationally. Although common and often mild, atopic dermatitis can be a challenging condition to manage. GPs are generally the first point of care in diagnosis and management of eczema, and as such they have a significant role in providing education for patients and their families, and in referral to a dermatology service when it is required. This educational activity delivered by a dermatologist provides comprehensive information on the role of stratum corneum lipids in eczema management.
