Patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis are at risk for cardiovascular disorders and psoriatic arthritis. Dermatologists are in a unique position to screen for these disorders and counsel patients to be aware of early symptoms and risk factors. Prevention and early intervention of these disorders can be achieved by appropriate treatment of psoriasis and reduction of other risk factors contributing to these complications.1,2

Navigate this medical simulation and Lisa’s clinical challenges with Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Menter as your guides, to improve your knowledge of psoriasis comorbidities and clinical strategies to improve long-term patient outcomes.
