21 March 2021 - In collaboration with Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, the leading medical center in Taiwan, Pierre Fabre Eczema Foundation held the first initiative in Taiwan for the Eczema School program - a comprehensive therapeutic workshop for nurses and patients.


The program was designed by Dr. LAI Po-Ju, Director of dermatology department in Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, specifically to train nurses and parents on how to better treat eczema patients. In addition to strengthening their knowledge of the pathology, providing practical skin care advice, Dr. Lai also demonstrated emollient application and wet-wrapping treatment techniques, and divided the attendees into small groups to practice during the workshop.

The workshop was recognized by Taiwan Ministry of Health & Welfare and issued professional continuing education points for the nurse's practitioner certificates. 36 nurses from medical centers, hospitals, and dermatology clinics have registered. 

Through this workshop, Chung Shan Medical University Hospital and the attending nurses and patients have expressed great appreciation for Pierre Fabre Eczema Foundation's contribution to professional medical education and support of providing better quality of life for patients and their families.

The importance of front-line medical staff is well recognized since the outbreak of COVID-19. Pierre Fabre Group, as a longtrem partner with health professionals, look forward to more collaborations and providing advanced workshops for patients, families, physicians, and the public for better living quality. It is our duty to do our bit, to share, and to grow together.
