Crafting Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) Care: From Case Simulation to Practice

Providing patient-centered care for patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is truly a craft, requiring conscious reflection and deliberate practice. This 60-minute online CME activity begins with a short presentation on the pathophysiology and treatment of PsA, with a focus on new and emerging targeted therapies and patient-provider shared decision making. Participants will then complete 2 patient case simulations in which they will be able to apply their new knowledge, gain hands-on experience, and learn from outcomes related to their treatment decisions.
