Dermatology 1 – Assessing and Treating Rashes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Dermatitis is a common skin problem encountered in wound practice. Understanding causes and treatment are paramount. For example, topical steroids are the most prescribed topical medication for the treatment of rash, eczema, and dermatitis; however, clinicians are unsure what potency to prescribe, what vehicle works best, how long to use the therapy, and how much to dispense. There are hundreds of topical steroids and combination products available, which can be very confusing for prescribers. Furthermore, the percutaneous absorption of topical steroids may be impacted by many variables and clinicians need to choose wisely. Selection of the most effective topical corticosteroid, while minimizing patient risk and side effects, is crucial to providing standard of care.

This continuing nursing education activity awards up to 1.00 pharmacology hour.
