Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Develop skills to manage patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis with an emphasis on decision-making criteria that will enable the clinician to individualize therapy based upon disease type, extent, response to previous treatments, quality of life issues, and co-morbidities.
  • Recognize and diagnose challenging clinical cases and formulate appropriate evidence-based treatment of patients using the recently published six AAD evidence-based guidelines of care for psoriasis.

Studies have shown that high-quality guidelines can make important contributions to improving the quality of patient care. This session will be helpful in not only expanding physicians’ knowledge base but in improving clinician confidence and effectiveness in treating patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The session will consist of six didactic presentations with time for questions and answers, as well as interactive case discussions which will permit the learners to apply the knowledge gained. All participants will be given a full set of AAD guidelines and implementation products at the session. A short survey will be conducted before and after the session, and follow-up surveys will be sent one year post session to gauge and evaluate if the guidelines were easy to translate into daily clinical practice.
