Description

Background: Many patients with chronic itch and atopic dermatitis (AD) or psoriasis do not receive/use available medical and psychosocial treatments properly due to system, provider, and/or patient factors. Objective: An educational website (ITCH-RELIEF4Me) to improve itch-related quality of life (QoL) for adults with AD or psoriasis and chronic itch was developed and assessed. Psychometric characteristics of the English version Itch Cognitions Questionnaire and two new measures of scratch as well as sleep-related scratch and itch were evaluated. Methods: Single-arm pre- and post-test design with one-month follow up (N = 137 at baseline).
