The first day of the 2023 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs and NPs begins with KOL-led “Mentoring for Leadership” sessions. Lauren Miller, PA-C, a board-certified dermatology physician assistant at Southern Skies Dermatology & Surgery in Alabama, discussed with attendees how to effectively build their cover letter to stand out among other applicants, what PAs and NPs need to know about managing atopic dermatitis with biologics, and office tips for improving efficiency.
“While most patients described their [seborrheic dermatitis] (SD) as moderate-to-severe and having a significant impact on their quality of life, [health care providers] (HCPs) underestimated the patient-reported severity and level of impact on patient’s quality of life,” revealed Chovatiya et al in a poster presentation from the 2023 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs and NPs.
“My own physician assistant, Monique, she's priceless. I can't live without her; she works with me on the research side. So if the value of a PA in an office has to be demonstrated, I'll just show you her picture,” said Neal Bhatia, MD, ahead of the 2023 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs and NPs. Bhatia, the director of clinical dermatology at Therapeutic Clinical Research in San Diego, California, is presenting 3 sessions at the meeting, including what attendees need to know about JAKs and TYKs, as well as the PAs and NP's role in clinical trials and research.
Dermatology Times’ Editorial Advisory Board member, Christopher Bunick, MD, PhD, recently presented at the 2023 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs and NPs alongside Lauren Miller, PA-C, and Gil Yosipovitch, MD, to discuss how biologics and advanced systemic therapies are able to improve the lives of patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). Bunick, an associate professor of dermatology at the Yale School of Medicine and a physician-scientist, and his colleagues reviewed numerous topics during their panel discussion, including the mechanism of action of cytokines in AD, how all AD patients can’t be grouped into the same category, what to do when providers have a patient that is on a biologic or systemic therapy and they have an impetiginized AD flare, and more.
Treating rare or even common dermatologic conditions in pediatric patients requires expert knowledge as well as compassion. Attendees at the 2023 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs and NPs were eager to attend Adelaide Hebert’s, MD, session, “What is New in Pediatric Dermatology.” Hebert, the chief of pediatric dermatology at the McGovern School of Medicine in Texas, began her session by discussing evaluation strategies for rare pediatric dermatologic conditions, including ichthyosis and epidermolysis bullosa.
