To enable everyone across the world to take part in the 4th World Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Conference, IFPA will provide live updates and insights from the conference via Twitter.

Live Updates

IFPA will be tweeting from the conference sessions and corridors to let those unable to attend follow the discussions and presentations at the conference. To get all updates, simply follow #WPPAC15 and @PsoriasisIFPA on Twitter.


IFPA brings together patient representatives from member associations from around the world at the conference. Some of these representatives will be interviewed by IFPA via Twitter. This allows patients, healthcare professionals and other stakeholders to learn about the insights gained from the conference from a patient perspective.

Follow @PsoriasisIFPA to read the Twinterviews, which will take place:
July 8 at 16.15 CEST with @silviafbarrio
July 10 at 12.30 CEST with @JOSEFdeGUZMAN
July 11 at 12.30 CEST with @PsoriasisDK

Tweet Chats

IFPA wants to provide patients and healthcare professionals who are unable to attend the possibility to ask questions at the conference. Via Tweet Chats, they will be able to ask experts about the latest research being presented at the conference, and find out what role it might play for patients. To make sure various key scientific fields are covered, we have invited a dermatologist, rheumatologist and psychodermatologist to participate in our Tweet Chats on:

July 9 15.30-16.00 CEST (Dr. Elaine Husni, Rheumatologist)
July 10 15.30-16.00 CEST (Dr. Sylvia van Beugen, Psychodermatologist)
July 11 15.00-15.30 CEST (Dr. Liv Eidsmo, Dermatologist)

To participate in the Tweet Chats, follow #ChatWPPAC and @PsoriasisIFPA. Make sure to include #ChatWPPAC when asking your question.

Ground rules for IFPA’s Tweet Chats:

IFPA looks forward to hosting the above Tweet Chats to include people from across the world in the discussions at the 4th World Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Conference. Our priority is letting everyone gain new insight into research developments on psoriasis / psoriatic arthritis.

However, to make sure that the Tweet Chats are a friendly forum for discussion, IFPA asks Tweet Chat participants to follow a few simple ground rules:

  • Please stay on topic – we will not be discussing or providing advice on specific treatments, company products or brands
  • Please ask questions!
  • Remember that these are public conversations
  • Please note – the answers given in the tweet chat will be the views of the invited HCP experts, indicated by their initials, and may not represent the views of IFPA
