Statement of Need

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), a serious and potentially disabling condition, affects approximately 30% of patients with psoriasis, with the joint involvement often occurring about 10 years after the appearance of skin disease. PsA causes not only physical and functional impairments but also has a negative impact on overall quality of life. While dermatologists have an important role in early detection of PsA, patients often have overlapping treatment needs that require collaborative care between dermatologists and rheumatologists.

Recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approvals of several agents for moderate-to-severe PsA have expanded the treatment armamentarium, and the management paradigm continues to evolve. However, PsA continues to be under-recognized, misdiagnosed, and inadequately treated.

In this CMEOCast podcast, expert faculty focus on the latest evidence on screening patients for PsA, individualizing treatment that considers patient-reported outcomes (PROs), and using patient-centered approaches for care, with the goal of optimizing patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Employ screening and assessment strategies to diagnose patients with PsA in clinical practice.
  • Integrate clinical evidence for targeted therapies when individualizing treatment for patients with PsA, including their effects on PROs.
  • Implement comprehensive, multidisciplinary, patient-centered approaches to treating PsA, taking into account patient preference and presence of comorbidities.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Summarize screening and assessment strategies to diagnose patients with PsA in clinical practice.
  • Describe clinical evidence for targeted therapies when individualizing treatment for patients with PsA, including their effects on PROs.
  • Explain comprehensive, multidisciplinary, patient-centered approaches to treating PsA, taking into account patient preference and presence of comorbidities.
