GA²LEN Atopic Dermatitis Centres of Reference and Excellence – ADCARE
GA²LEN, the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network, has recently launched a programme for the development, interaction and accreditation of centers of reference and excellence in special areas of allergy embedded in its overall quality management of allergy centres of excellence.
Atopic Dermatitis is a common and debilitating condition and can be a challenge for both patients and treating physicians Centers of reference and excellence in atopic dermatitis (ADCAREs) can help to improve the management of hard to treat conditions. Here, we describe the aims, the requirements and deliverables, the application process, and the audit and accreditation protocol for GA²LEN ADCAREs. The main aims of GA²LEN ADCAREs are to provide excellence in atopic dermatitis management, education and to increase the knowledge of atopic dermatitis by research and to promote the awareness of atopic dermatitis by advocacy activities.
ADCARE is a proud member of the European Innovative Partnership on Active Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA ).

To become a certified GA²LEN ADCARE, centers have to apply and fulfill 32 requirements, defined by specific deliverables that are assessed during an audit visit.
