Annual Advances in Dermatology – NYU Langone Medical Center
June 2, 2016 - June 3, 2016$495
Dermatology is a rapidly evolving specialty, with new advances in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology made every year. New medications and treatment modalities for both common and uncommon dermatological diseases have been released, or will be in the next few years, that will change the treatment indications for these conditions. In addition, older medications may still play a role in treating these conditions, and how they should be properly incorporated is vital for optimizing patient outcomes.
This two-day program will educate practitioners with an interest in the care of persons with skin disorders, including dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons, other specialists, primary care physicians, and residents in dermatology with current therapeutic options and treatment guidelines as taught by an experienced faculty. It will focus on newly emerging clinically applicable knowledge – ranging from new guidelines to recognition of emerging agents and adverse events to translational research – regarding the best approaches to management of patients in order to achieve the best quality of care/outcomes for patients suffering from both common and uncommon dermatologic conditions.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Establish an algorithm to determine which patients with psoriasis or autoimmune dermatological conditions are eligible for each new drug, how to dose the drug, and how to safely monitor these patients
- Better counsel patients on the expected benefits and possible side effects of systemic and topical medications as well as the use of surgical and other procedural techniques to treat skin diseases and cosmetic concerns.
- Recognize those patients previously ineligible for treatment of acne, rosacea, and atopic dermatitis and offer them new therapies.
- Describe the safety profile, risks, and side effects of new medications, explain how to dose and monitor therapy, and assess their efficacy depending on the severity of disease
- Establish a strategy to recognize which patients would benefit from new laser/light source devices or injectable substances, as well as describe how to use them safely and effectively
- Describe the new indications for management of cutaneous malignancies, and outline the options for their patients suffering from cutaneous malignancy in order to optimize their outcome
