Practical solutions to paediatric eczema care

Eczema, a prevalent chronic skin condition in children, demands careful and informed management to reduce flare-ups and maintain skin health. A significant part of patient care involves clarifying misconceptions about eczema treatments, particularly the use of topical corticosteroids. Having up-to-date knowledge to alleviate patient & parental concerns supports a patient centred approach to eczema management.

Join our expert presenters as we repeat this popular practical webinar dispelling the myths of eczema care. Using a case based approach, this session applies the new eczema management plan to demonstrate the practical aspects of care including application of creams, adjuvant therapies of wet dressings and bleach baths.  

This session will provide you with the latest evidence on eczema management addressing common questions and concerns around food allergies and eczema. To support your knowledge and equip you with the right information to provide patient care and education, we will debunk the myths around the use of topical corticosteroids and provide you with resources to support patient education.

You have the opportunity to enrol in the lunch-time or evening session, or watch on demand following the live sessions. Join the session live to apply your knowledge with the interactive polls and Q&A session, or enrol and watch the webinar on demand at a time that suits you.
