Program Description

The live online webinar will occur on the date and time as noted. The live program will be recorded and available for viewing on demand until January 10, 2024. This 2-hour CME activity is a live webinar which will be recorded with the intention to be re-watched or viewed as on-demand education. This webinar is being conducted to provide physicians with scientific updates and current studies related to medical management for patients with different types of hair loss. As a result of this activity, learners will be able to gain more knowledge in current practices to manage the wide range of hair-loss conditions. 

The online live component will include presentations, panel discussion, and audience participation via verbal questions and discussion, typing chat Q&A and polling.

Professional Practice Gap

Hair loss is still a complicated condition to treat. Actual medical management can be difficult and can carry many types of side effects. New developments in medical treatments should be assessed, learned, and included if applicable in our daily practices. The goal is to bring all hair doctors up to speed with current studies, with a diverse number of disease treatments and methodologies to improve patients’ outcomes.

Educational Need

Most webinars cover routine therapies for hair loss for the practicing hair doctor.  These subjects are partially addressed in many textbooks and scientific articles.  However, the audience for this webinar will be the intermediate and more advanced practitioner who would benefit greatly from the subjects covered in this webinar, representing current advancements which can be applied in our own clinical practice.  Hopefully, not only will methodology be outlined but also a vibrant debate and discussion will ensue to help foster greater dialogue and refinement of those ideas.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participating in this webinar, the attendees should be able to:

  • Discuss up-to-date male and female pattern hair loss treatment
  • Explain upcoming treatments for androgenetic alopecia
  • Describe the use of JAKi in alopecia areata and other lymphocytic alopecia
  • Give examples of how to improve hair density in non-androgenetic alopecia

Please note that first authors were required to collect and submit disclosure information on behalf all other authors/contributors, if applicable.

  • Ineligible Company: The ACCME defines an “ineligible company” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services used on or consumed by patients. Providers of clinical services directly to patients are NOT included in this definition.
  • Financial Relationships: Relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected.  ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.

The ACCME also requires that ISHRS manage any reported conflict and eliminate the potential for bias during the educational activity.  Any conflicts noted below have been managed to our satisfaction.
