Ankylosing Spondylitis

Patient-centered Tools for Education & Engagement

Pfizer is committed to helping people with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) become empowered to play an important role in managing their medical condition. What does personal empowerment mean? It is a process that may help patients work with their medical team to act on medical and lifestyle issues that they, together, define as important. Empowerment means becoming a partner with the healthcare professional (HCP) team to participate in shared decision-making on personal treatment-related issues and options.

The following brochure—created by Pfizer Medical Affairs—provides important content for adult patients who have AS. The brochure:

  • Offers insights for adult patients into the characteristics of AS and how it can be managed

  • Provides a refresher for adult patients on disease-related information that can be used to educate family members or friends about AS

  • Can help support the Treat-to-Target (T2T) approach to care based on shared decision-making
