Psoriatic Arthritis Continuing Education

Stay Informed While Earning Psoriatic Arthritis CME Credits

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a serious and potentially disabling condition that affects about 30% of patients with psoriasis. The joint involvement of PsA often occurs about 10 years after the appearance of skin disease. In addition to the physical and functional impairments from joint destruction, PsA negatively impacts relationships, activities of daily living, work productivity, and overall quality of life (QoL). Unfortunately, individuals with PsA are often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Dermatologists clearly have an important role in detecting early signs of PsA, and the overlapping treatment needs of patients often require collaborative care between dermatologists and rheumatologists.
This Psoriatic Arthritis Hub is dedicated to providing educational activities, resources, and tools to improve the care of patients with PsA.

All Hands: Integrating a Team Approach to Risk-Benefit Individualization of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis Therapy

 

Participate Now  

Although rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are associated with irreversible joint damage and physical disability, remission is now an achievable goal for the majority of patients, owing to advances in early diagnosis, new therapies, and improved treatment strategies. This CME Outfitters OnDemand webcast focuses on integrating a multidisciplinary approach to treating PsA and RA through case-based learning, with expert faculty discussing management strategies and how to integrate shared decision-making (SDM) into practice to facilitate appropriate treatment selection and empower patients.
