Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- Atopic eczema is a common childhood disease affecting one in five children in the UK. Effective therapy improves quality of life for children with atopic eczema and their parents and carers, and can be provided for over 80% of children with atopic eczema in a primary care setting. It is known that a lack of education about therapy leads to poor adherence, and consequently to treatment failure.
