Question and Answer Session








The target audience for this educational activity is nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in dermatology. Dermatologists and other clinicians who are members of the healthcare team providing care for patients with psoriasis may benefit from participation in this educational activity.


Leading dermatology/rheumatology faculty and a patient presenter will lead us through changes in the psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis landscape via an interactive activity featuring TED Talk-style presentations, patient storytelling, and a discussion. The presenters will focus on advances in the clinical areas of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, as well as how these advances introduce changes in the lives of people suffering from psoriatic disease, the increased complexity of care, and changes in routine clinical practice due to new, increasingly efficacious treatments. The activity will conclude with key teaching points and a question and answer session. Afterwards, participants will be able to download references and additional resources via a link included in the activity handout.


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


Discuss new and emerging treatments for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.


Screen patients with psoriasis for psoriatic arthritis at each visit.


Reflect on recommendations from the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) for treatment of psoriatic arthritis.


Utilize practical treatment

considerations for patients
with challenging comorbidities.



Coordinate care with rheumatology providers and other healthcare providers who treat patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
