Improving Therapeutic Patient Education for Atopic Dermatitis: Evaluation of a Parent Handbook

2018-11-01 15:25:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of an educational handbook for parents of children with atopic dermatitis (AD) in improving clinical outcomes for pediatric patients with AD and their parents. The handbook was developed by an interdisciplinary team of healthcare providers to facilitate therapeutic patient education as a routine component of care for pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). Patient education is an important element of practice management guidelines for AD, particularly given complex treatment plans and high rates of non-adherence in this population. Parents of children with AD will be randomized into either the handbook arm (handbook provided as an adjunct to standard AD management with a healthcare provider at Boston Children's Hospital) or the control arm (standard management alone). Participants will complete study measures at two time points: baseline (prior to a clinic visit appointment for AD care at Boston Children's Hospital), and 3-month follow-up. Data will be analyzed for change on study outcome measures (AD symptoms, AD severity, quality of life) and satisfaction with the handbook.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disseminated vesicular-pustular eruption caused by the herpes simplex virus (HERPESVIRUS HOMINIS), the VACCINIA VIRUS, or Varicella zoster (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It is usually superimposed on a preexisting, inactive or active, atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC).

The widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly, erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder (e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.), or as a primary or idiopathic disease. It is often associated with the loss of hair and nails, hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles, and pruritus. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.

A STEROID with GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTOR activity that is used to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA; ALLERGIC RHINITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS.

Rare autosomal recessive disease with variable expressions. Clinical features of the disease include variable ICHTHYOSIFORM ERYTHRODERMA, CONGENITAL; bamboo hair (trichorrhexis invaginata); and ATOPIC DERMATITIS. The disease is caused by mutations in the SPINK5 gene.
