Upcoming Meetings:

PPACMAN will hold 4 wellness programs from January through April.

The mission of PPACMAN is to optimize the clinical care of patients with psoriatic disease through multidisciplinary collaboration, education and innovative research.

A collaborative approach to treatment by a combined team of rheumatology and dermatology clinicians allows for a unique blend of expertise and provides the opportunity for comprehensive care for the PsA patient.

One of the common themes we have been encountering in psoriatic disease management, and particularly in PsA, is that often a prescription for a therapy is not enough. Many of the symptoms of PsA are often multifactorial and several lifestyle factors contribute to both symptoms and impacts of the disease and may impact response to therapy.

Patients are now asking such questions as: What should a person with arthritis be eating? What do you think about the purported benefits of turmeric?

Wellness approaches are not part of the training of rheumatologists nor dermatologists. Now is the time to incorporate wellness strategies into the practice. The goals of this series are to inform providers of the opportunities to incorporate wellness strategies.

Registrationis now open.
