The target audience is dermatologists. Other healthcare professionals, including rheumatologists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who treat patients with PsA, may benefit from participation in this educational activity.


The workshop will include two case simulations. Each participant will work on the simulations using a provided iPad®. In each simulation, participants will be able to explore a clinical vignette of a patient with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and make a treatment decision choosing from the available options. Each case simulation will be discussed with the entire group of participants. As part of the workshop, the multidisciplinary faculty team will deliver three fast-paced, practice-oriented presentations. The first presentation will review the role of dermatology providers in PsA care, highlighting the importance of screening patients with psoriasis for PsA in order to timely diagnose PsA and start treatment that can prevent or reduce joint damage. The second presentation will address the wide range of PsA therapies and latest evidence-based recommendations for treatment of PsA. The third presentation will introduce an approach for patient-provider shared decision-making in the treatment of psoriasis and PsA. Throughout the workshop, participants will be invited to answer questions, as well as ask questions and make comments, verbally and via iPads®.


As a result of participation in this educational activity, participants should increase their ability to:


DISCUSS Group for Research
and Assessment of Psoriasis
and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA)

recommendations for treatment
of PsA.



SCREEN patients with psoriasis for PsA at each visit.


INCORPORATE advances in treatment of PsA into care of patients with psoriasis and PsA to achieve desired treatment targets.


Effectively ENGAGE
patients with psoriasis and
PsA in shared decision making regarding goals of treatment, development of treatment plan,
and treatment modification.
