Recent updates in the classification of EB have been published, preferred diagnostic methods and clinical care practices are also evolving. In this EB Clinet Online Seminar, based on the publication ‘Diagnosis and Care of the Newborn with Epidermolysis Bullosa’, lead author Anne W. Lucky, MD; will provide a comprehensive overview on current standards in diagnosis and treatment recommendations for EB.
She will first discuss the best methods to accurately diagnose epidermolysis bullosa in an infant with fragile skin. The second focus of the seminar will be on the principles of skin care for neonates with EB, together with a consideration of the possible EB-associated comorbidities and complications. For this part Dr Lucky will be accompanied by two experienced nurses, who will demonstrate bandaging techniques and dressing material and give recommendations from their practice. The seminar will be rounded up by literature recommendations and a panel discussion, where Dr. Lucky and the co-authors of the publication, Jean Whalen, RN; Susan Rowe, RN; Kalyani S.
