Psoriatic disease, comprising psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, is a chronic, systemic inflammatory condition affecting more than 8 million Americans. There are many variations of this often difficult-to-manage disease, ranging from subtle signs and symptoms to disfiguring plaques and debilitating joint problems. In this activity, an expert clinician affiliated with the National Psoriasis Foundation explains how to recognize the early signs of psoriatic disease, when and how to treat, when to refer to a specialist, pros and cons of the various therapies, and how to provide ongoing care and support for patients at different stages along the disease continuum.
