Statement of Need

With psoriatic arthritis (PsA), effective diagnosis and treatment present a challenge. While dermatologists are the front-line clinicians managing psoriasis, they do not routinely screen for PsA. The rheumatologists,who are best positioned to treat PsA,do not have access to the patients unless referred by the dermatologists.

Coordination of care has never been more important than in the prompt diagnosis and treatment of PsA. With the substantial health and economic burden that PsA imposes, it is important for rheumatologists and dermatologists to join forces in education and practice to apply most current recommendations for screening for early detection, referral, and treatment.

This CME Outfitters symposium features expert faculty involved in the coordination of care for patients with PsA. These engaging experts discuss how to help practicing clinicians recognize the early signs of PsA and implement early screening techniques, examine recommendations for treatment, and advise on how and when to collaborate between dermatology and rheumatology.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Implement appropriate, guideline-directed screening approaches in patients with psoriasis to facilitate a prompt diagnosis of PsA.
  • Describe current treatment recommendations and emergent therapies for PsA.
  • Strategize ways that specialists in rheumatology and dermatology can work together to improve detection and treatment of PsA.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE credit:

  • Identify appropriate, guideline-directed screening approaches in patients to facilitate a prompt diagnosis of PsA.
  • Describe current treatment recommendations and emergent therapies for PsA.
  • Identify strategies that specialists in rheumatology and dermatology can use to work together to improve detection and treatment of PsA.
