Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Use innovative therapies for patients with complicated conditions, or common maladies unresponsive to commonly effective approaches.
  • Safely and effectively utilize established medications for off-label uses.

Description:
Faculty will present innovative approaches to some treatment-resistant dermatologic problems, some using newer drugs and treatments, others reaching back to therapies that worked in the past but may have been forgotten. Off-label and ABM (anecdote-based management) will predominate, with a few evidence-based pearls as well. Target audience is the office-based dermatologist. Participants are urged to e-mail challenging cases to drspstone@gmail.com in advance of the meeting for discussion by the faculty. The more audience participation, the merrier!
