Fundamentals of Psoriatic Arthritis

As the number of new and emerging treatment options for patients with PsA continues to expand, dermatology and rheumatology healthcare providers are challenged with keeping pace with the continually escalating amount of clinical trial data and treatment implications of existing PsA therapies. This activity will provide not only an overview of PsA pathophysiology but also expert insights regarding the latest treatments, guidelines, and therapeutic strategies for patients with PsA.


The goal of this activity is to provide dermatology and rheumatology clinicians timely, applicable information about the clinical manifestation and management of patients with PsA to help improve their understanding and care of this patient population.


This activity has been designed for members of healthcare provider teams in dermatology and rheumatology practices who care for patients with or who are at-risk for psoriatic arthritis (PsA). No prerequisites required.



Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to:

  1. DESCRIBE the pathophysiology of PsA.
  2. EVALUATE available treatments, guidelines and emerging therapeutic strategies for patients with PsA.
