The Combined Approach to atopic eczema informs and explains: it is an educational approach.

The programme of appointments uses:

  • Discussion: throughout the programme a two-way exchange of information and ideas aims to motivate successful changes in behaviour.

  • An illustrated hand book, in stages: provides a reference for assessment, treatment and follow-up, for discussion in clinic, and for homework.

  • Involvement of others: recruiting positive social support outside the clinic clarifies ideas and enhances commitment.

  • Website reinforcement: staged online answers to frequently asked questions ensures maximum understanding and success.

  • Review and revision throughout: allowing for variation in ability and difficulty, and generating a final personal follow-up plan to maintain behavioural changes.
