RF213-3 - Prescribing and Monitoring Oral Retinoids in Acne

Friday, November 24
9:55 AM - 10:10 AM

Acne is firmly within the competencies of the modern family doctor. Over eighty-five percent of adolescents will be affected by acne. Its sequelae in the psychosocial realm — by means of body image, social anxiety, and physical scarring — can be lifelong if not treated quickly and competently. Oral retinoids are increasingly accepted as first-line in moderate to severe acne. In the following interactive presentation, we will provide an evidence-based, straightforward, systematic approach to acne therapy with oral retinoids. How can I confidently and safely prescribe isotretinoin? When should I refer? What is fact and what is fiction in isotretinoin and its relation to inflammatory bowel disease and depression?
