ALIGN PsA: Advancing a Multidisciplinary Approach in PsA
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that is associated with several comorbidities and co-manifestations that reduce patient quality of life. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a form of spondyloarthritis that is associated with psoriasis and typically involves peripheral disease, axial disease, enthesitis, dactylitis, and skin and nail lesions. Psoriatic arthritis is associated with a substantial psychosocial and functional burden and can lead to irreversible joint damage if left untreated. Early and accurate diagnosis of PsA is critical. The symptoms of PsA span the fields of dermatology and rheumatology, and professional societies recommend co-management between rheumatologists and dermatologists to optimally treat the condition. Dermatologists must be familiar with the hallmarks of PsA, while rheumatologists should understand the impact that cutaneous manifestations of PsA can have on quality of life. Current models of co-management include combined clinics and virtual clinics, which have had success in case reports. Co-management of PsA has been associated with more use of biologics, better preventive care, and higher patient satisfaction.

Psoriatic Disease: Signs, Symptoms, and Diagnosis
Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory disease with a probable genetic and environmental etiology. Although psoriasis is often considered a disease of the skin, the condition can have severe musculoskeletal and systemic comorbidities and co-manifestations.4,13 These conditions include Crohn’s disease, uveitis, celiac disease, and metabolic syndrome. Psoriasis has also been associated with psychiatric disorders, such as anxiety and depression.13

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that affects approximately 3.2% of adults in the United States. Psoriasis is associated with a number of coexisting conditions, the most prevalent of which is psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Among people with psoriasis, the prevalence of PsA is estimated to be between 6% and 41%. According to expert KOL opinion, interdisciplinary cooperation between dermatologists and rheumatologists remains a significant practice gap in the management of psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Combined clinics offer a promising care model because they increase collaborative care for patients with complex diseases, enhance professional development, provide unique training opportunities for medical students, residents, and fellows in a setting where they can learn the importance of communication between patients and provider and allow the opportunity to study long-term outcomes and outcome measurements in patients with complex diseases.
- Analyze the roles of the dermatologist and rheumatologist in the treatment of psoriatic disease (PD), including both psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA)
- Discuss how to integrate interdisciplinary collaboration into daily clinical practice
- Define PsA under the spondyloarthritis umbrella and discuss CASPAR criteria
- Describe the detrimental effects and comorbidities of untreated PD
- Discuss comorbidities associated with PD
- Define the patient-centric effects of PD, including aspects that affect quality of life, and recommend techniques to treat the “whole” patient
- Review data on new and emerging therapies for PD
- Demonstrate strategies to incorporate diagnostic and treatment updates into clinical practice and how to tailor treatment to individual cases
