Research Gaps in Psoriasis: Opportunities for Future Studies and Development of New Outcome Measures for Clinical Trials
Monday, March 24
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Alice B. Gottlieb, MD, PhD, FAAD - Handout
- April S. Abernethy, DO
- Joel M. Gelfand, MD, MSCE, FAAD
- Neil J. Korman, MD, PhD, FAAD
- Mark Lebwohl, MD, FAAD
- Henry W. Lim, MD, FAAD
- Caitriona Ryan, MD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Address gaps in research and clinical knowledge.
- Suggest studies that can be conducted to fill the gaps.
- Discuss the development the new outcome measures in dermatology.
This session will be helpful in expanding physician knowledge base in the field of psoriasis. Despite important advances, substantial deficits remain in the understanding of psoriasis and its treatment, necessitating further research in many areas. In this session the most important gaps in research that exist currently and suggestions for studies to be performed to fill the gaps will be discussed. The session will also address the efforts of International Dermatology Outcomes Measures (IDEOM) Committee to develop outcome measures that accurately measure the impact of treatments on patients’ disease severity and quality of life using the Delphi method.
