In this online, self-learning activity:

Psoriasis is a T-lymphocyte-mediated condition that is one of the most common immune-mediated inflammatory diseases in the North America and Europe. Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis, but several, rarer subtypes of psoriasis have been described, including pustular psoriasis, wherein neutrophils infiltrate the epidermis and present as raised, sterile pustules. One form of pustular psoriasis is generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP), which is characterized by primary, macroscopically visible pustules on the non-acral skin that may occur with or without systemic inflammation and may be relapsing or persistent. Another form is palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP), a persistent condition that is persistent and localized to the palms, soles, or both. These subtypes may be severe and life-threatening and pose a significant healthcare burden, contributing to hospital admissions, higher healthcare resource utilization, and reducing patient quality of life. One survey shows that a majority of patients live under psychological duress and experience at least two flares annually. The same sample reports that condition has a significant impact on their activities of daily living.

Target Audience:
HCPs including: Dermatologists, primary care physicians, and emergency medicine physicians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who practice in the aforementioned areas of specialty; and those with an interest in or commonly encounter patients with pustular psoriasis.
