Managing Eczema and Expectations!

Fay Penart-Buck

I started my career in Dermatology 19 years ago in Norwich, after working in medical and emergency roles, I went back to Dermatology, working in Primary care clinics and secondary care covering inpatients, nurse -led clinics for cellulitis, acne and eczema and the lead-nurse for the vulval clinic. A
move to Lincolnshire forced a speciality change, so I switched to Rheumatology, knowing there was a cross-over between inflammatory conditions. This led to a clinical research post, predominantly covering
ophthalmology and Dermatology. Progressing to Advanced Practice was a natural step, leading to a Primary Care career in general practice. Quickly my colleagues noticed my Dermatology specialism, leading to lots of clinics filled with skin disorders, teaching in the practice, and supporting GPs on the
VTS. I currently juggle a post at the Training hub as Clinical Supervision Lead for Advanced Practitioners, Advanced Clinical Practitioner for GP hub and locum, and teaching across various platforms and events.

Skin complaints are common in Primary care, accounting for approximately 1 in 3 appointments. Eczema prevalence in children is 30%, adults is 10%. Poor outcomes are usually due to low adherence to treatment. The importance of diagnosis, patients understanding of the disease and management plan can
not be underestimated. This talk aims to cover recognition and management of eczema, including what to tell your patient, shared decision making and self management support.
