Statement of Need
Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease associated with a host of comorbid conditions. Unfortunately, the condition often remains untreated or undertreated despite its prevalence and the availability of many treatments. Suboptimal outcomes and poor patient satisfaction are often caused by the use of mere topical agents to treat moderate and severe psoriasis when more potent biologic and oral treatments should be used.
Effective communication with patients is essential to determine treatment goals and then select appropriate treatment. Additionally, health care coaches have been shown to improve outcomes in patients with chronic conditions, and supplemental education to patients is the best method of ensuring that they are armed with all the necessary tools to attack their psoriasis and prevent it from controlling their lives.
In this CME Outfitters Live and On Demand, expert faculty will discuss how best to include digital health coaching into clinical practice to reinforce patient education and provide critical guidance to patients.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Ensure management of comorbid conditions in patients with psoriasis through screening and appropriate referral when necessary.
- Employ a proactive approach to the management of patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis not responding to current treatments.
- Integrate digital coaching into the management of patients with psoriasis to improve patient outcomes and treatment satisfaction.
The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
- Explain management of comorbid conditions in patients with psoriasis through screening and appropriate referral when necessary.
- Describe a proactive approach to the management of patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis not responding to current treatments.
- Identify digital coaching tools for the management of patients with psoriasis to improve patient outcomes and treatment satisfaction.
