The Pharmacist’s Role in Managing Skin Conditions: A Focus on Adjunctive Care
Pharmacists play a key role in optimizing the management of dermatologic conditions by counselling on medications, promoting treatment adherence, mitigating side effects, and recommending appropriate adjunctive care.
The goal of this program is to increase pharmacists’ confidence in recommending strategies to alleviate the symptoms of common skin conditions (atopic dermatitis, acne, and sensitive skin), and to mitigate treatment side effects.
This program has received an educational grant or in-kind support from La Roche-Posay.
This continuing education lesson is designed primarily for pharmacists and has been accredited by the Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy (CCCEP) for 1.0 CEUs.
