Clinical Scorecard Offered to Physicians

A "Rosacea Clinical Scorecard," based on the recently published standard grading system for rosacea,1 has been developed by the NRS to aid physicians and researchers in diagnosing and evaluating rosacea in their patients, and assessing the results of therapy.

The new evaluation form allows physicians to rate the primary and secondary features of rosacea as absent, mild, moderate or severe and includes a global assessment by subtype conducted by both the physician and patient. The clinical scorecard forms are available to dermatologists nationwide by contacting the National Rosacea Society, 800 S. Northwest Highway, Suite 200, Barrington, Illinois 60010 or using the Physician's Request for Materials.
