Atopic Eczema Management

Presenter The Nurses for Nurses Network

The information around the management of eczema has long been a source of frustration for many due to the inconsistent information that is available. Contrary to popular belief, eczema is not curable and so a uniformed approach to eczema management needs to be established.

Course Content

In Australia, the management of eczema has long been determined at the local health level with growing calls for a national eczema management plan. Understanding why people get eczema can help the healthcare professional to make appropriate recommendations regarding the treatment and management. Treatment is often individualised once an assessment of the state of the person's eczema has been established and therefore it is important that healthcare professionals familiarise themselves with the different presentations of eczema.
