Promoting effective education for children with eczema

Deryn Thompson Lecturer, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia

Patient and parent education for children with eczema should follow a consistent approach, guided by an established framework that combines aspects of nursing, education and cognitive psychology. Using the framework enables nurses to understand how to use and develop their skills when providing education about the management of eczema in children, and enables patients and parents to understand and develop the skills required to manage a chronic condition such as eczema. This framework is transferable to the adult context.
