Atopic patients, multi-disciplinary specialists, caregivers, and experts from all over the world participated in the International Meeting of the Eczema Foundation in Malta (IMEF). During this 4-day conference, attendants addressed the challenges pertaining to the management of atopic dermatitis by sharing their experience in the form of presentations, discussion sessions, workshops, and a plenary session. This article aims to report on what we consider to be a successful attempt to unite patients and caregivers in the quest for improved treatment of atopic dermatitis through the implementation of therapeutic patient education.
