Statement of Need

Psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are complex disorders that require coordinated care between dermatologists and rheumatologists. Challenges to effective management include a lack of education of patients and health care providers (HCPs), suboptimal communication, and clinicians' lack of a holistic treatment approach.

The third episode of this BriefCase series on challenging cases in PsO and PsA features a physician-patient office scenario video on educating the patient and strategies to coordinate care between specialists, as well as between specialists and primary care, with a goal of optimizing patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Coordinate care for patients with PsA to optimize outcomes and quality of life (QoL).

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

  • Summarize coordination of care for patients with PsA to optimize outcomes and QoL.

Financial Support

Supported by educational grants from Celgene and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.

Target Audience

Dermatologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists
