The National Psoriasis Foundation provides the Dermatology-Rheumatology Collaborative in association with the Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis Clinics Multicenter Advancement Network. PPACMAN’s mission is to “optimize the clinical care of patients with psoriatic disease through multidisciplinary collaboration, education and innovative research.”
The goal of the Dermatology-Rheumatology Collaborative is to improve education for trainees, practicing dermatologists and rheumatologists in early identification of psoriatic arthritis and the value of collaborative care for patients with psoriatic disease.
By the end of each live event, participants will be able to:
- Understand the appropriate diagnosis of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis symptoms from cross-disciplinary perspectives to ensure early intervention.
- Outline the safety, efficacy and role of current and emerging treatments in addressing both skin and joint symptoms for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, including complex psoriatic disease presentations.
- Apply a patient-centric, collaborative care and appropriate shared management model for the treatment of psoriatic disease patients with both skin and joint symptoms and how to establish an integrated practice setting.
