These resources are designed for people living with psoriatic arthritis and those who help support them. You can use them by yourself or with your healthcare provider.
They look at different health behaviours people can adapt to help them manage their psoriatic arthritis symptoms.
The resources are not intended to focus on drugs or medications.
The information we give is based on the best available evidence and most up-to-date advice. It is intended to complement the medical treatments you have been recommended for your psoriatic arthritis.
People from any country are welcome to use Informatree.
How we created this resource
People living with psoriatic arthritis, health care professionals who treat people with psoriatic arthritis, psychologists and researchers worked together to develop the resource.
The project was led by the University of Oxford, UK. Still, it was informed by people with psoriatic arthritis living around the world.
We made sure that the advice given in the resources was based on the most up-to-date information. Healthcare professionals and researchers refer to this as the best ‘evidence’ available.
We systematically searched the scientific literature to find all available systematic reviews (a review that brings together different research studies) and guidelines. The search, carried out in May 2021, looked for research studies and international guidelines for psoriatic arthritis published between 2010 and May 2021.
Where high quality evidence was not available, we based the recommendations on clinical expertise and the experience of people living with psoriatic arthritis.
The website is not a living document. The information was accurate up to May 2021.
In the evidence resource links, we have provided the weblinks to all of the research studies we used to create this resource.
The resources give an overview of the current treatment of psoriatic arthritis. Your healthcare professional should be willing to answer any questions you have. There is considerable additional information about psoriatic arthritis available on many excellent websites. You can view links to several patient-focused sites with information on psoriatic arthritis here.
We hope that these resources are helpful to you and wish you the best in managing your psoriatic arthritis.
