New in CME Courses: Missed Opportunities in Managing Patients with Psoriatic Disease

Target audience:  Dermatologists, Rheumatologists, Internal Medicine physicians, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting more than 3% of the general population. Among patients with psoriasis, 5% to 30% are affected by psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Patients with psoriasis and comorbid PsA experience significant disease burden, including reduced quality of life, decreased physical function, and increased comorbidities. Despite recent advances in understanding the pathophysiology and improved treatment options, psoriasis and PsA remain underdiagnosed and undertreated.

To improve outcomes for patients with psoriasis and PsA, it is important for physicians to understand the domains of disease activity, associated comorbidities, and available treatment options.

Through 3 different scenarios, this case-based CME activity will review the guidelines for management of psoriasis and PsA and the efficacy and safety data of approved and investigational agents with different mechanisms of action and their role in disease management, as well as the implications of comorbidities in managing psoriatic disease. Expert rheumatology faculty will provide clinical insight regarding tailoring psoriasis management to optimize treatment outcomes.
