As a new nurse practitioner in primary care, managing Atopic Dermatitis can be challenging. But, with the right knowledge and approach, you can give your patients with atopic dermatitis the best care possible.
I got to chat with a pediatric dermatologist and added a TON of clinical pearls to my arsenal of "real world" NP knowledge-- which I'm sharing with you in this week's video.
Managing Atopic Dermatitis in Primary Care

Maybe you haven't seen someone with severe eczema yet, so you could save it for a rainy day, but you'll be so much more prepared when it comes around (and the patients & kiddo's parents will LOVE you for it).
