The i2i network is delighted to be re-launching our psoriasis programme as a stand alone programme in recognition of the fact that psoriasis needs to be managed a lot better in primary care with less inappropriate referrals into secondary care to reduce the pressure in the NHS. The role of the GP pharmacist is essential to help to ensure that patients receive annual reviews in relation to their psoriasis and that medicines are not just re-authorised without a thorough review.
This programme has been designed to equip you to competently manage psoriasis with an emphasis on doing so virtually.
This promotional psoriasis programme including educational resources, virtual workshops and implementation resources have been developed by Soar Beyond and LEO Pharma. The programme is fully funded by LEO Pharma and is intended for UK Healthcare Professionals only.
Date of preparation: January 2021
