After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to describe and discuss:

  • Evidence based strategies to prevent the occurrence of SJS/TEN

  • Evidence based advances in managing patients with SJS/TEN

We are reaching out to a broad array of clinicians and scientists including dermatologists, ophthalmologists, clinical pharmacologists, pharmacists, epidemiologists, surgeons, gynecologists, regulatory scientists, informaticians, immunologists, geneticists, skin biologists. basic scientists and nurses all of who have much to contribute to this field.
