Publisher: Springer Healthcare
This article, co-authored by a psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patient and a physician who regularly encounters and treats PsA patients, discusses the patient’s experience of living with the disease, from diagnosis through living with the disease day-to-day and other people’s reactions to their treatment experiences and responses. The physician adds to this by providing his experiences in treating PsA with biologics, and the importance of patients working together with their rheumatologists to maximize the efficacy of treatments and improve patients’ quality of life.
