Ohio AAP Announces Atopic Dermatitis: Regional Education and QI Project

The Ohio AAP’s newest quality improvement and regional education program will focus on improving the recognition, diagnosis, and management of atopic dermatitis (AD) in primary care settings. The multi-disciplinary expert project leadership team will give providers the necessary tools to manage all aspects of AD. Kara Shah, MD, FAAP will provide dermatology focused education on best practices in AD management and patient adherence to treatment, while co-leaders Emily Harris, MD, FAAP and Chris Peltier, MD, FAAP will assist providers in improving their skills on the mental health and primary care implications of AD in pediatric patients, respectively.

This project will offer regional education in the spring of 2020 through presentations in Columbus, Cincinnati, and Michigan; following these presentations, practices from Ohio and surrounding states will be invited to engage in a one year practice transformation program, with quality improvement coaching from a practice coach and guidance from the project team.

Training dates include:

  • May 11 – Ann Arbor, MI (Kensington Hotel), 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • May 14 – Columbus, OH (OU Dublin location), 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
