Workplace Guide

Psoriatic disease presents unique challenges when you are in the workforce. It is important to understand what you can do to get through your day with less interference from psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, and this guide is meant to help you do that. 

Learn how to talk with supervisors and colleagues about your psoriatic disease and how it impacts the daily and hourly activities at work. You will also find information on your rights in the workplace and tips for requesting accommodations. 

Movement can be an important tool in managing pain due to psoriatic disease, so we have included guides on physical activity, stretching and mobility to help you stay focused on your work and not your disease.
