Education

New CME Programs Available

IPC has recently launched several new CME programs on its website. Two different webcasts are available for viewing. One of these webcasts was filmed at our Meet the Experts Program at the Pacific Dermatological Association Meeting in Huntington Beach, California. The other program was filmed at our Meet the Experts Program in Prague, Czech Republic. Both webcasts feature IPC Councilors presenting challenging cases they have faced in their clinical practices with intriguing dialogue and follow-up questions.  

Another recently launched CME Program, is a combined Review of the EADV Congress in Prague and New Psoriasis Therapies in Production. This program can be found in our most recent edition of our December 2012 Psoriasis Review Newsletter.

Treatment

Mechanisms of Disease in Psoriasis
IPC’s workshop held at the ESDR congress in Venice, Italy brought together an eclectic cast of speakers and panelists to deliberate the mechanistic basis for psoriasis immunopathogenesis. Co-chaired by Frank Nestle and Hervé Bachelez, participants derived from across the globe, with a view to articulating how the evolving knowledge of genotype can best be translated to phenotype in psoriasis. A summary manuscript of the proceedings has been accepted for publication in the British Journal of Dermatology.
