A Patient-Centered, Multi-Specialty Intervention to Enhance a Sense of Community in the Management of Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
Team Lead: Elizabeth Helen Cusick, M.D.
As part of this initiative, we have created an inter-departmental collaboration of atopic dermatitis with primary care pediatrics, dermatology, and allergy/immunology to optimize care for our atopic dermatitis patients as well as to foster relationships between these specialties. This novel approach allows trainees to spend more meaningful, engaging time with patients, as well foster mutual respect among multidisciplinary health care professionals through a series of provider workshops to discuss goals of care, the creation of an Eczema Action Plan, and series of patient-centered disease-specific workshops that aim to identify improvements in patient care by engaging in collaborative dialogue.
