Psoriatic Arthritis: Understanding Patient Perspectives and Providing Patient-Centered Care

This 45-minute long, engaging enduring activity was designed for clinicians who treat patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis to engage, inform, and educate the participants on best practices in approaches to discuss with patients their beliefs about psoriatic arthritis and expectations for disease treatment and management, shared decision making regarding goals of treatment and treatment plan, and coordination of care between dermatology providers and rheumatology providers in management of patients with PsA. The patient was put in the center of the curriculum in a series of short videos featuring the patient with psoriasis and PsA and his interactions with the healthcare providers.
