  • Overview

    Psoriasis is more than just a cosmetic skin disease. Psoriasis is a distressing and painful autoimmune disease associated with significant emotional and physical daily burden. Over time, psoriasis can lead to other serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, depression, and psoriatic arthritis(PsA). As many as 30% of psoriasis patients develop psoriatic arthritis. Even with a wide range of pharmacologic options available, evidence indicates that treatment remains inadequate and patient satisfaction low. This knowledge-based activity will review the pathophysiology of psoriasis and PsA, compare and contrast the current and emerging treatment options and identify opportunities for pharmacists to improve the patient care, satisfaction with care and outcomes.
