The goals of this clinical and critical-thinking webcast are to help clinicians improve their abilities to properly assess psoriatic arthritis (PsA) using Classification Criteria for Psoriatic Arthritis (CASPAR) and review the current standard of care and emerging agents, considering their mechanisms of action and targets for treatment.
Rheumatologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), and other clinicians who provide care for, manage, or refer patients with PsA (eg, podiatrists)
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
Incorporate validated diagnostic criteria, disease-activity measures, and clinical guidelines into clinical practice for early detection and intervention in psoriatic arthritis (PsA)
Perform a comprehensive assessment of PsA, disease progression, response to treatment, and comorbidities that is considerate of each patient’s disease severity and impact on quality of life
Employ evidence-based recommendations and more recent clinical trial experiences to develop individualized treatment regimens for patients across the spectrum of PsA severity
Assess the mechanisms, efficacy, safety, tolerability, and ease of use of emerging medications for achieving treatment goals in patients with PsA
