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.

The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
