Physician Credit Designation
This educational activity will include a multidisciplinary panel consisting of a dermatologist, a rheumatologist, a family practice physician, and a patient with psoriasis. The program will define the unique aspects of care that practitioners provide to patients with psoriasis, including facilitating conversations about managing disease, setting expectations, and selecting treatment options, including when treatment response or tolerability is suboptimal. The importance of relationship building also will be explored. Practical strategies to address patient barriers, including lack of knowledge about psoriasis, fear of injections, and adverse effect risks will be provided. By engaging patients in their psoriasis care plans, family physicians can optimize outcomes and manage psoriasis and its comorbidities. Participants will be able to select which patient cases are reviewed.
