Coordinating Care to Improve Outcomes in Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis: Bridging Rheumatology and Dermatology

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

With psoriatic arthritis (PsA), effective diagnosis and treatment present a challenge. While dermatologists are the front-line clinicians managing psoriasis, they do not routinely screen for PsA. The rheumatologists,who are best positioned to treat PsA,do not have access to the patients unless referred by the dermatologists.

Coordination of care has never been more important than in the prompt diagnosis and treatment of PsA. With the substantial health and economic burden that PsA imposes, it is important for rheumatologists and dermatologists to join forces in education and practice to apply most current recommendations for screening for early detection, referral, and treatment.

This CME Outfitters symposium replay features expert faculty involved in the coordination of care for patients with PsA. These engaging experts discuss how to help practicing clinicians recognize the early signs of PsA and implement early screening techniques, examine recommendations for treatment, and advise on how and when to collaborate between dermatology and rheumatology.
