29 Oct 2014 – World Psoriasis Day and global survey on psoriasis
Today, IFPA celebrates World Psoriasis Day with the theme of “Building A Better World for People with Psoriasis.” Practically, we want to highlight some preliminary results from a global online survey on psoriasis we launched in June. The survey allows people with psoriasis, healthcare professionals and friends and family to identify tools that would improve their life quality.
With responses from over 90 countries already sent in, a clear consensus is starting to emergy. The tool most respondents have favoured so far, is “educating patients about treatment options” to help them better understand their disease. The final results of the survey will be published in the summer of 2015 at the IFPA World Conference.
