Advance Practice Provider Psoriasis Recognition Program

The Advance Practice Psoriasis Recognition Program (A-PReP) is specifically designed to address knowledge and practice gaps among physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs). The program will cover pathophysiology, diagnosis and assessment of psoriasis, appropriate therapies and recent treatment guidelines through didactic lectures, specialized modules and Q&As.

More clinicians are expanding their practices to address the needs of a population with ever increasing medical needs and broadening their availability to see patients through PAs and NPs. It is essential that psoriasis patients receive consistent and comprehensive care from all dermatology health care providers to ensure better outcomes, adherence and satisfaction.

By building relationships with their patients and working collaboratively with dermatology and rheumatology health care providers and other specialists, NPs and PAs can facilitate communication about the patient’s treatment preferences and expectations for symptom relief. They may also be better able to work with the patient to optimize treatment adherence.


The 2020 National Psoriasis Foundation A-PReP program is CME  accredited for up to 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits!
