The European Atopic Eczema Consensus Report is the result of the discussions of a Consensus Committee of 15 key opinion leaders from the atopic eczema community. As multidisciplinary experts, they conducted an assessment of the atopic eczema community around the three areas that affect patients the most:

  • The physical and emotional burden of AD/E
  • The diagnosis and care burden of AD/E
  • The financial and economic burden of AD/E

EFA and its national member associations have transformed the findings of the Consensus Committee of AD/E into a Call-to-Action addressing European and national decision-making bodies. Some of these recommendations include:

  • Reinforce the role for specialised nurses, psychologists, pharmacists and nutritionists in atopic eczema care
  • Ensure the respect of the newest clinical guidelines, establishing an agile system of referral for AD/E patients
  • Adopt a new clinical approach, where AD/E diagnosis is not static but adapts based on the developing condition of the patient and latest scientific evidence
