Eczema Education Programme for Teenagers — seeking to get it right
The Teenager Eczema Education Programme is a bespoke one-day course for children aged between 12 and 18 with atopic eczema. The course runs in school holidays and on Saturdays in London. It has developed from a passion within the dermatology nursing team at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Trust to ensure teenagers engage with caring for their skin and feel empowered to speak confidently and assertively to the many adults who oversee their treatment and care. This article describes the development and content of a one-day course for teenagers with atopic eczema. The teenage participants and their parents are invited to evaluate the programme, and data from these evaluations are included along with some examples from the activities undertaken. This is an evolving programme and an area of proposed change is highlighted.
