The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) is the only national organization in the United States specifically dedicated to the field of Pediatric Dermatology.
The Society's objective is to promote, develop and advance education, research and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups. The organization holds meetings twice a year to educate physicians about advances in pediatric dermatology, help them support children with dermatological diseases and improve the care of these children.
This site provides information for the purpose of developing and advancing education, research and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups.
The SPD has partnered with the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) to produce a series of pediatric dermatology-specific modules for the AAD's Basic Dermatology Curriculum. These online education tools offer a broad overview of each topic, and are user-friendly resources for primary care providers, dermatology and pediatrics residents. Topics include Genetic Skin Diseases, Infantile Hemangiomas and Vascular Malformations, Birthmarks, Rashes and Sun Protection.
SPD has initiated work on a series of handouts, aimed at providing reliable information for pediatric dermatologists, dermatologists, pediatricians, family practitioners and internists to use and shared directly with patients and their families. Several are already available, including Acne, Infantile Hemangiomas, Moles, Warts, and Isotretinoin.
The SPD has received many requests to help define the scope of practice for physician extenders working with Pediatric Dermatologists. In response, the Workforce Committee developed guidelines to assist Pediatric Dermatologists in their practice. Guidelines covering the pathogenesis, patient assessment, treatment plan and patient/parent counseling for Acne, Atopic Dermatitis, Verrucae Vulgaris (Common Warts) and Molluscum Contagiosum can be found at the Members Only Area of this site.
