New CME Module Gives PAs a Clearer Understanding of Atopic Dermatitis

AAPA News Release (06/16/21) Andrews, Dave

The American Academy of Physician Assistants and The France Foundation have designed a continuing medical education (CME) module for PAs and nurse practitioners, to augment their knowledge and confidence in treating atopic dermatitis (AD). The online course focuses on the root causes of AD and outbreaks and how certain drugs can alleviate certain conditions. The module also aims to help broaden providers' understanding of the patients' experience and the best approaches to improve their quality of life. Kimberly Dempsey, PA-C, director of the PA program at Eastern Virginia Medical School and a collaborator on the AD course, says the CME offering "helps providers look at this disease state differently." She notes the module allows learners to set their own pace and revisit certain subjects if they want, while also providing real-time feedback of their progress. Dempsey adds, "For practicing PAs and nurse practitioners who lead very busy lives and can't go to every conference that comes up, this is a great way to get education that's interactive and individualized."
