Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis presents a significant clinical and humanistic burden to patients and payers. Fortunately, there has been a marked increase in the number of safe and effective therapies to the disease. As a result, payers, specialty pharmacists, and affiliated providers are challenged to match patients with the most appropriate therapeutic option. This program will focus on the therapeutic options available to manage the spectrum of pathologic challenges confronted by patients with psoriatic disease which can help enable specialty pharmacy professionals to improve patient quality of life and clinical outcomes.
