  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

- In psoriatic arthritis, inflammation goes beyond the joint: enthesitis and dactylitis are hallmarks of the disease; extra-articular features, including inflammatory eye and bowel disease, are common.
- Early recognition and treatment is important to prevent progressive joint damage and disability.
-Screening for comorbidities is also important, especially cardiovascular risk factors.
