Patient-centered Tools for Education & Engagement

Pfizer is committed to helping people with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) 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 other 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 disease management-related issues and treatment options.

The following materials―created by Pfizer Medical Affairs―seek to provide practical content for adult patients who have PsA. These materials:

  • Offer insights for adult patients into the disease characteristics of PsA and how to help manage PsA symptoms
  • Provide a refresher for adult patients on disease-related information that can be used to educate family members or friends about PsA
  • Can help patients evaluate the effect PsA may have on them and how to communicate the impact in discussions with their HCP
