Statement of Need
The educational programming of IID 2018 is designed to develop, maintain, and/or increase the abilities, skills, and professional performance of its target audiences. IID 2018 CME activities will:
- Disseminate updated evidence-based knowledge of skin biology/disease and applications for maintaining health and preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease in a manner that fosters scientific excellence, elevates the standard of care, and meets high ethical standards.
- Provide target audiences with a relevant forum for the exchange of cutting-edge scientific ideas, information, and methodology.
- Advance the science involved in basic skin biology and clinical care of patients with skin disease.
- Provide exposure to novel science (both concepts and methods) which may be relevant in the future to understanding and treatment of skin disease.
The primary target audiences for IID 2018 CME activities include all of the sectors of the dermatology community, consisting of research investigators, clinicians, research and clinical trainees, members of industry, and community advocates for skin health/disease.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify which disease states require new or additional research
- Evaluate state-of-the-art information relating to basic skin biology research
- Describe how newly discovered, evidence-based scientific information may or may not be applied to the current practice of investigative or clinical dermatology
- Apply strategies to structure and design successful research proposals, abstracts, and manuscripts
- Facilitate interdisciplinary and/or collaborative investigation in clinical dermatology and skin biology to improve research hypotheses, processes and/or techniques
- Incorporate knowledge gained from interactions between basic scientists and clinicians into daily decision-making
