"Optimize the clinical care of patients with psoriatic disease through multidisciplinary collaboration, education and innovative research."
Having established a network of combined clinics, the GOALS of PPACMAN are now focused on:
Improving education for trainees and practicing dermatologists and rheumatologists about the importance of early identification of psoriatic arthritis and value of collaborative care for patients with psoriatic disease;
Support for formation of similar clinical models and regional derm-rheum partnerships; and
Research demonstrating the effectiveness of these care models. This includes studies to identified mechanisms for improved PsA screening, comorbidity identification and management, and defining ideal care outcomes.
