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:
A brochure about PsA for patients with psoriasis. This resource explains PsA–including its key signs, symptoms, and characteristics–and includes the PEST questionnaire (see below).
A validated five-question instrument used by HCPs to help evaluate if a patient with psoriasis is at risk of developing PsA.
