Practical Psoriasis Resources Highlighting Opportunities in Patient Care

The chronic inflammatory nature of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis necessitates long-term systemic management.1 While there are several systemic therapies available for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, many dermatologists are reluctant to use them. Furthermore, not all patients respond initially, maintain response, or adhere to their prescribed therapy (due to efficacy and/or tolerability issues), which may result in inadequate disease control.1,2

The resulting undertreatment signifies a need to establish treatment goals to help manage the disease and improve long-term clinical and psychosocial outcomes.1,2
