Psoriatic disease, encompassing both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, carries a significant burden for a patient’s mental and physical quality of life. Patients can become distressed by the discomfort caused by psoriasis plaques, as well as embarrassed by their appearance—especially if they occur in prominent areas, such as the scalp. Further, up to 30% of people with psoriasis will go on to develop psoriatic arthritis. Optimal management must take into account individual patient factors, comorbidities, and the range of available therapeutics. In this video lecture, an expert explores the steps for management of psoriatic disease—from classifying disease severity, to the plethora of considerations for treatment selection, to long-term management of the disease and associated comorbidities.
