This activity was derived from a live CME series at regional dermatology meetings. The expert faculty, Richard Fried, MD, PhD, will explain the mechanisms of action of various emerged and emerging biologic therapies for the treatment of moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Recently released clinical trial data, as it relates to patient care, will be reviewed. Dr. Fried will also discuss how to engage all members of the healthcare team to create optimal, personalized treatment plans for psoriasis patients. Upon completion of this educational activity, learners will have a better understanding of newer biologic therapies for the treatment of psoriasis and how to to utilize them to improve patient outcomes.
