Program Description

This case examines the relationships between psoriasis and metabolic disease and cardiovascular disease. To optimize treatment of psoriasis, it is useful to treat metabolic syndrome along with therapy for skin symptoms, especially in cases of obesity. Many new therapies are available for treating psoriasis, and therapeutic choices should be decided upon with the patient. In women of childbearing age, the effects of the drugs on the fetus, as well as after birth during breastfeeding, need to be discussed with the patients on a case by case basis, and all options considered.

Intended Audience

This activity was developed for dermatologists, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with psoriasis.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the comorbidities and complications which make treatment and management decisions more complex
  • Determine the most appropriate treatment approaches to psoriasis based on individualized patient needs
  • Create the link between knowing about newer therapies available for the treatment of psoriasis and applying that knowledge to clinical practice
