Masterclass: Management of High Impact Psoriasis Sites

7:30PM - 8:30PM Tuesday 21st February 2023

Masterclass: Management of high-impact psoriasis sites

Join A/Prof Kurt Gebauer and Dr John Sullivan in this Masterclass as they discuss how the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) does not adequately address the severity of the disease in high-impact sites. They will also discuss the effect of the involvement of high-impact sites (scalp, palms, soles, nails, genitals) on quality of life and how psoriasis at these sites is best managed. A/Prof Peter Foley will host the session.
