Two case simulations are the core of this enduring activity. Each simulation will allow participants to explore a clinical vignette of a patient with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and make a treatment decision, choosing from the available options. The activity also includes three concise presentations that were recorded during a live event that took place in conjunction with the 2018 Maui Derm for Dermatologists meeting. The first presentation reviews 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 addresses the wide range of PsA therapies and the latest evidence-based recommendations for treatment of PsA. The third presentation features a practical approach to patient-provider shared decision-making about treatment goals and treatment plan. This activity focuses on the recent advances and practical applications of available therapies, which have been shown to have efficacy for the treatment of psoriasis and PsA. It will not dive into the details on efficacy, safety, and risk data for every treatment option, because this is outside of the scope of this activity.
Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to:Screen patients with psoriasis for PsA at each visitDiscuss Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) recommendations for treatment of PsAIncorporate advances in treatment of PsA into care of patients with psoriasis and PsA to achieve desired treatment targetsEffectively engage patients with psoriasis and PsA in shared decision-making regarding treatment goals, development of treatment plan, and treatment modification
