Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a common dermatological condition that causes significant impact on infected patients. Affected patients will have seen many healthcare professionals and wait years prior to initial diagnosis. Even after diagnosis, many of these patients fail to reach their treatment goals with their prescribed therapy.
Pharmacists can play a key role in improving outcomes in people with HS. They can help to identify patients with the symptoms and apply the most recently published guidelines to ensure optimal treatment. In this session, we will review HS, its impact, how to manage the condition and the important role of the pharmacist in HS management.
