Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a multifactorial, chronic inflammatory and heterogeneous disorder that affects up to 20% of children and up to 3% of adults.  The disease is characterized by intense itching, secondary skin infections, and recurrent eczematous lesions, and poses a significant burden on healthcare resources and patients' quality of life.

There is a wide variation in knowledge, competence and practice patterns among clinicians regarding the assessment and management of atopic dermatitis and its comorbidities.
