ABSTRACT
Dermatology is unique in that not only are there a shortage of dermatologists in the United States but patient access care to is largely disproportionate. As a response to the chasm of access that exists, many patients have relied on the Internet to obtain information on how to address their concerns, and this often comes at the cost of non-evidence based remedies being promoted. The inception of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has led many physicians to restrategize their approach to patient care. Fortunately, utilization of a virtual model has been integral to this process. The purpose of this study was twofold increase patient confidence in addressing dermatologic concerns by providing targeted education on specific dermatologic topics and define a framework that can be implemented by dermatologists looking to use social media to increase patient education and access to dermatologic care. 3 separate education sessions (webinars) were held where the topics of hair, eczema, and acne were discussed, respectively. Each session was roughly 1 hour in length. Attendees were given pre- and postwebinar surveys to assess existing patient attitude toward their knowledge of dermatologic topics and their comfort in consulting a dermatologist with their concerns. Across the 3-day series, the total number of registrants was 30. 12 registrants for the hair webinar with an overall attendance rate of 33%;12 registrants for the eczema webinar with an overall attendance rate of 33%;6 registrants for the acne webinar with an overall attendance rate of 50%.
