Turning the Tide: Applying Science to Patient Care in Treating Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Atopic Dermatitis

Fast-paced and focused on emerging science and treatment techniques, Turning the Tide is an interactive activity designed to sharpen participants’ understanding of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and atopic dermatitis and equip them with forward-thinking patient-centered communication strategies. Through a combination of medical animation, TED Talks-style presentations, a clinical case study, and a discussion of patient-provider shared decision making, learners will explore disease pathophysiology, mechanisms of action of targeted therapies, evidence-based treatment recommendations, and use of decision aids. Learners will be provided access to slides and additional resources.
