This session will be helpful in expanding physician knowledge base in the field of psoriasis. Despite important advances, substantial deficits remain in the understanding of psoriasis and its treatment, necessitating further research in many areas. In this session the most important gaps in research that exist currently and suggestions for studies to be performed to fill the gaps will be discussed. The session will also address the efforts of International Dermatology Outcomes Measures (IDEOM) Committee to develop outcome measures that accurately measure the impact of treatments on patients’ disease severity and quality of life using the Delphi method.
