Navigating the New Psoriasis Guidelines: Implications for Clinical Practice

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Statement of Need:
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) and the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) have recently released new joint guidelines that outline best practices for the management of psoriasis (PsO) with biologics, the need for awareness and attention to comorbidities, and guidelines for pediatric PsO treatment. Clinicians must ensure that they are aware of these guidelines and of strategies to incorporate them into clinical practice, including the integration of biologic therapy into treatment plans, the implementation of strategies to manage comorbidities, and the management of pediatric patients with PsO, in alignment with guideline recommendations.

In this interactive CMEO Live and On Demand webcast, leading experts in PsO will utilize clinical cases to illustrate real-life approaches that learners can apply in order to optimize incorporation of these latest recommendations into clinical practice.

- Integrate biologic therapy into treatment plans for appropriate patients with moderate-to-severe PsO, in accordance with the joint AAD-NPF guidelines.
