What is Psoriasis in Practice (PiP)?

PiP (Psoriasis in Practice) is an on-line training programme to help health care professionals (including primary care nurses, dermatology nurses, pharmacists and podiatrists in any health care setting who may care for people with psoriasis and PsA) understand the needs of people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, and to manage their patients quickly and effectively.

Psoriasis in Practice Section 1 IllustrationThe course has been developed by the Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Alliance (PAPAA) a UK patient charity, in conjunction with leading experts in dermatology and rheumatology. Input from patients gives the course a unique real life quality, which will help any health care professional understand the day-to-day needs of people living with these conditions.

This programme has been accredited by the RCN Centre for Professional Accreditation until April 4th 2019. Accreditation applies only to the educational content of the programme and does not apply to any product.
