Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) April 09, 2015
CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider in continuing medical education, announces its newest CMEO Medical Simulations, Not Just Skin Deep: Psoriasis Parts I and II. Faculty experts April W. Armstrong, MD, MPH, and Alan Menter, MD guide you through the simulations to improve your knowledge base and clinical management skills in patients with psoriasis, and improve your knowledge of psoriasis comorbidities and clinical strategies to improve long-term patient outcomes. Dermatologists, physicians, and other health care professionals, including pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who have an interest in psoriasis are encouraged to participate.
Patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis are at risk for a variety of comorbidities. Dermatologists are in a unique position to screen for these comorbidities and counsel patients to be aware of early symptoms and risk factors. Prevention and early intervention can be achieved by appropriate treatment of psoriasis and reduction of other risk factors contributing to these complications. In this two-part medical simulation, you will meet Lisa, a 45-year-old woman who presents to you feeling very self-conscious about her skin condition, in part one, and has questions about the effects of her skin condition on her overall health, in part two. Navigate through the simulation and Lisa’s clinical challenges with Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Menter as your guides.
At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Implement treatment according to treatment guidelines in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis.
- Screen and counsel patients on comorbidities associated with psoriasis.
