Atopic Dermatitis

The Atopic Dermatitis Quality Improvement program provides education and training on improving the recognition, diagnosis, and management of atopic dermatitis in the pediatric primary care setting. Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, affects 12% of children. Many pediatricians feel ill prepared to treat atopic dermatitis and there is a shortage of pediatric dermatologists in Ohio. This aligns with Ohio AAP’s work to provide education and resources to providers in Ohio and beyond to have a positive impact on as many children’s lives as possible.
